Addiction Recovery Story #28, Sunflower: The Pink Earrings Helped, But They Can’t Cure It

A week ago Friday — the last day of Skippy’s spring break— we drove down to Sandy Hook with her and two pals.

For an overeater and sugar addict, is splurging on pink jewelry much different from picking up a pink cupcake? Hilma earrings with glass and gold-plated beads, made by artisans in Guatamela. Mine are a lighter pink pattern. They have gold-plated posts (not wire loops, which can pull down earlobes) and, well, I love them.
My husband, Dan, plants happy sunflowers out front every year. The neighbors seem to enjoy them. He bought a packet of “Mammoth” seeds today at Home Depot.
