We always get excited when the warmer weather hits. Bliss House and our Bliss Alumnae plan different events to help the women we serve to explore having fun without a drink or drug. In June, we had a carwash to raise money for our ladies to attend Float for Recovery. Float for Recovery is designed around sober fun and all proceeds benefit the Healing Place in Louisville. In July, our Alumnae rally together and raise money for a weekend camping trip for our current Bliss House residents. They sleep in tents, go tubing in a lake, and end each day around a bonfire sharing about their experiences, old and new.
Getting sober is a serious matter. In fact, for most of us, it’s the difference between life and death. However, we are not a glum lot. We realize life is beautiful, and it is okay to have some fun along the way. We take these summer moments to relax, let our hair down, go camping or swimming, and enjoy the things that our eyes haven’t always been open to.
