celebrating Jonah's recovery
Oh, Holly, such a delightful post about such a wonderful achievement! Go, Jonah, for all of your hard work, and go, Holly, Jonah and family for your equal strength and steel in this journey you're all on together. I'm so glad I found you on Substack, and have had the privilege and joy of sharing in your story - yours, Jonah, and yours too, Holly. Such bright lights for the future, such meaningful reflections of the past. You're a great team. A wonderful story for a wonderful family. I know the hard work continues, don't get me wrong, but heck, all of you, you're NAILING this. You're AWESOME. Love, love, love from across the pond. You're all amazing, and I hope that you know it. ♥️♥️♥️
Go Jonah! You are making a difference in this world. What great words! Thanks, Holly, for bringing us in with you!
What a celebration and please thank Jonah for sharing his words with us. You are helping so many Holly by sharing your stories. Thank you. Sending hugs and love from up north!
Congratulations to Jonah!! Sending love to your whole family as you celebrate this incredible moment. xoxo
Please pass along my congrats to Jonah! It’s a long road and a lot of work, but every day is a win.
Separately, body/paint work is a great trade to learn! No shortage of work either.
I don't think I could be any happier than I am for the WORK that Jonah put in and continues to put into being the person he wants to be in life. Holly, I am also holding you so close as a fellow Mom, for all we want, is for our children to be in a place of growth, health, and happiness.
So very happy to hear of Jonah's success! I can only imagine how full your heart is. Jonah's message can serve as courage and inspiration for others...continued blessings to everyone!
What an achievement! And, what a good reason to celebrate! Jonah -- please know that you have permission to feel very, very proud of yourself. Holly, I am newer here so not aware of this story before now, but I also applaud your courage in sharing this journey from your lens. Well done, mama!
Lovely, so happy for Jonah and his mama!! ❤️
Wonderful news! I was elated when I saw the sub headline! Congratulations to Jonah for his perseverance, to the program for its success, and to your family for your love and patience to see him through it.
Jonah's words paint a vivid picture of the struggle that leads to recovery. Very moving!
Well Jonah your words not only resonate with me but inspire! I congratulate on all your hard work to peel those layers and then reveal yourself as this new masterpiece. Your beautiful smile, surrounded by such a supportive family, may you all grow in continued unity and love. Tell mom to share some vintage distressing sometime. Sounds devine. Having creative outlets and talent, I believe is a huge healer and distraction. Plus fun! Keep going, you have opened your world so much wider! 💕
Blessings to you and to Jonah. He has made a great first step into a life of sobriety. Addiction is composed of invisible chains that we wrap around ourselves; the longer one can spend free of mind-altering substances, the clearer the chains become even as they melt away. I have been sober 37 years, but consider even a sober afternoon for many to be a triumph. He will find that being sober is 10 times more rewarding, interesting and more fun than using. It saved me when I was 28, and I have been sober longer than I was alive at the time. I am cheering on you and your family!
And family and friends, too.
My sincere congratulations to Jonah - and all of you! Great post (as usual)!
Congratulations to Jonah!
It looks like your writing has rubbed off on him. I'm very impressed by his speech. Best of luck to him in his future. I know he can do it. Just stay positive.
