God knows all my drives home from work were mostly spent in prayer and listening to music. All my life I was begging God to save my mom and to heal her from addiction to alcohol. There were many tears during showers or laying in my bed at night. Most of my life was spent that way. I was always asking God for a miracle. I don’t think I will ever understand the depth of alcoholism and how it changes a person.
I wanted to let you know that:
You are loved. You are strong. You are resilient. And You will heal. Sending you all my love.
During my visits in the ICU I spent a lot of time with my headphones on. I needed a way to distract myself from the constant beeping of hospital machines. On the Pandora app I found Michael Whalen. His music was extremely calming and ultra healing in my times of pain. As I was watching her die the music really helped me remain calm. I remember I emailed him just to thank him for the beautiful music he made. Music is extremely powerful. Below I have added two websites so that you can listen to Michael Whalen’s music. I’ve also added in the music therapy website so that you can read about the healing effects of music therapy. I hope music can help you heal as well.
