Simple, Perfect Chocolate Pudding

Simple, Perfect Chocolate Pudding - Everything one could ask for - an intense chocolate flavor & silky texture that's still firm enough to stand a spoon in

I sat in my car outside the building .. this Saturday in December

Wondering if the time would ever come ..

When I wouldn't have to pick him up .. from yet another institution .. in a town far away

 “This isn't about you .. Remember .. This isn't about you”

I closed my eyes for a minute or two .. My mind re-finding its center.  Holding my key chain tightly in my hands

“Just for today, Mom” .. He'd always remind me .. “It's all we really have anyway”

But what about all the hurt?  What about the years of addiction?  What about the ripple effects it's had on every .. aspect .. of .. my .. life?  Of the lives of everyone in our family..  for that matter

“You need to put it away .. now is not the time.  This isn't about you”

I opened the flap of his Christmas present and took out my pen.  One of my favorite passages .. God's call to Abram.   God's promises of incredible blessings .. and a reminder that through him (Abram) .. so many others will also be blessed as well

“And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and though shalt be a blessing: And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed”   (Genesis 12: 2-3)

I hope one day he is able to experience the incredible love a parent has for their child .. my hand kept writing

“Blessed (you are) to be a blessing (never forget to be).  I love you more than you can ever know”

I slowly tied the string around his new bible ..

Took a deep breath .. and made my way toward the front door

After seven years of practice .. the drill is all too familiar.  I wait to be buzzed in .. my name recorded on a sheet of paper below the other visitors of the day .. and wait in the hallway

To the casual observer .. the facility wasn't anything special .. a nondescript building in a part of town that certainly wouldn't be described as affluent.  The fabric on the visitor's chairs was faded and fraying .. the twenty-year old carpet could have stood a good vacuuming .. and the walls a shinier coat of paint

This was a place where lives were being rebuilt .. and just like the building's facade .. it wasn't always pretty to look on the outside .. but if you looked a little closer .. if you looked with your heart .. on the inside something beautiful was underway

Smiles from people passing by .. along with a bit of small talk ..  “How could I have forgotten people are always so nice?”

A huge Christmas tree full of sparkly ornaments .. “Sometimes I wish we put up a tree during the holidays”

Smells of dinner cooking wafted my way .. “Dang .. that sure smells good”

Music played in another room .. “Will I ever tire of Christmas jazz?”

A father played a game with his two young children .. “What courage to exercise visitation while staying at a homeless shelter”

A man stopping for a few nights on his way through town .. over the past months he'd walked 1500 (!) miles.  I hear he's originally from Alaska .. I sure hope he set out in the summertime.

Stories ran the gamut .. always beginning with something lost .. and the promise of a new beginning.  “Could I do it?  I mean would I have what it took to start my life over with literally nothing?  I'm not so sure I'd do it with this level of grace”

We shared coffee and a tasty treat

“Does he know I could sit and talk to him for hours?  One of very few people I can really be myself with”

I've often wondered how we navigated those dark years .. he and I.  They weren't the kind that come along .. make a quick exit .. and let you recover with relative ease.  No .. these were instead a special darkness unto themselves .. the kind hell that pulls up a chair in your home .. offers you a drink .. and asks are you happy?  Are you comfortable?  How long to you want me to stay?  Should I unpack?  Should I forward the mail?   The kind from which you'll never be the same.

We talked of sobriety

Him:  “I'm not using .. learning how to managing my emotions in other ways”

Me:  “I haven't been eating cookies at the co-op every day”

How we're spending our days

Him:  “I'm learning .. reading .. working next week.  Trying to be the best person I can be”

Me:  “I've taken on a new project at work .. and a leadership role.  A next class is beginning soon.  Oh, and I'm writing .. lots of writing lately .. and trying to be a better me”

How's your heart?  Are you happy?

Him:  “I'm happy .. and so thankful for everything I have”

Me:  “I'm happy .. and guarding it with everything I've got”

Rebuilding a life

Him:  “What can I do to have other people to see me differently?  How do I prove I'm not the same person I was a year ago?   Five years ago?  They won't answer my messages .. take my calls .. or reciprocate if I reach out”

Me:  “No way am I the same as I was at 20 .. 30 .. or 40 for that matter.  There are a few people from those seasons that turn the other way if they see me at the grocery.  I want to run to them and say ‘but look .. I've changed .. everything is different now'

But somehow it's not that easy .. sadly .. it's never that easy.  You just build a different life .. without them in it .. it's all you can do.  Besides miss them like crazy”

I drove home that night in the dark .. no radio .. just my thoughts

I've spent more time with him in homeless shelters and addiction centers than I'd ever care to know.  No doubt .. it's life unedited .. at times raw and very real.  People struggling at what is often times their bottom.  It's always true .. that it's not until we're at our lowest of places .. that there can be a shift in our spirit .. and we emerge changed.

Every time .. and I mean every time I walk away .. I'm in awe of their gratitude .. their bravery .. and how very fortunate I truly am .. for the life I have

I can't help but wonder ..

What if all of us could put aside all of our hang-ups?  Offering the same grace to others that we'd want extended toward ourselves?  What if we realized we to aren't the same people today that were at 18 years old?   And thank someone who .. along the way .. chose to see us in a different light.

What if all of us gave nod to our own hang-ups and addictions?  The things that help get us through .. our glass(es) of wine in the evenings .. shopping .. sugar?   Living under the world's definition of social acceptability doesn't mean we're any better.

What if all of us really realized how fragile this life really can be?  The safety of the bubbles we live in can just as easily be broken?  And we just may need some help to pull ourselves up again one day

What if all of us truly took it to heart?   Pushed ourselves out of our comfort zones .. and really went out into the world to make a difference?   Realizing efforts don't have to be grandiose to touch a life

What if we returned that friend's call?   You know the one?   She was in a less than idyllic marriage for a very long time .. something she wasn't proud of.  Eventually she left him .. rebuilt her life .. and is completely different now

I'm positive you'd enjoy her company over a cup of coffee

Simple, Perfect Chocolate Pudding - Everything one could ask for - an intense chocolate flavor & silky texture that's still firm enough to stand a spoon in

What if we took a minute to ask someone how their day was?  You know the one?  He used everything and everyone he could for a number of years .. something he wasn't proud of.  Eventually he decided to rebuild his life .. and is different now

Guaranteed .. there would be some wisdom to impart .. in both directions

As the evening drew to a close .. we parted ways with a hug

“When was the last time I got to hug him?  When he hugged me back?  I wish I could remember”

Two kindred spirits .. who've been to the brink .. together .. and also alone .. said good-by .. on the front stoop of a place offering a sanctuary of peace .. for those brave enough to rebuild their lives.   I can't help but wonder if we ever stop rebuilding.

It went unspoken .. the reverence for how incredibly blessed we truly are .. no matter the place we lay our head at the end of the day.  Each having experienced life's gentle pull on their heart .. and the willingness to follow wherever it may lead (messy though it may be)

Each hoping to be a blessing to someone else along the way

Simple, Perfect Chocolate Pudding - Everything one could ask for - an intense chocolate flavor & silky texture that's still firm enough to stand a spoon in

As I pulled into the driveway that evening .. I couldn't help but smile.  Kitties and puppies greeted me at the door .. my husband and I caught up on the day over a glass of wine .. and a bit of chocolate pudding

I've done chocolate pudding many .. many ways over the years.  Especially when the kids were little .. and it's nearly always good.  But from this day forward .. if I'm lucky enough to have you come over for dinner and something chocolatey seems like a fitting dessert .. this is the recipe I'll be using

It from the whimsical Enchanted Broccoli Forest cookbook by Mollie Katzen.  The text and the drawings by Mollie herself.  The pudding completely caught me off guard .. in the best way possible

The key here is good chocolate .. then a gentle touch bringing a short list of common ingredients together.  Along with a bit of patience required to let the pudding cool and set.  The last piece makes all the difference.  Time in the refrigerator allows the pudding to set into the most wonderful chocolate cloud imaginable .. that's the consistency of whipped frosting.

You'll want to use good-quality chocolate in the 60-80% range .. semi-sweet to bittersweet.  Aside from the chocolate, you're only adding a milk .. cornstarch .. a few tablespoons of natural sugar .. and a drizzle of vanilla.  So don't skimp on the quality of ingredients here .. there's really no place to hide.

    I think, in a way, addiction IS about you. Addiction affects the entire family. Thankfully, lives can be rebuilt and true, none of us are the same people we were 20 years ago. We all should all keep an open mind and an attitude of love.

    Such beautiful words and such an emotional read, it has really resonated with me today of all days. Thank you for sharing something so personal. Although on the other hand, your beautiful photos haven’t helped my cravings for the chocolate pudding I can’t have!

  • Reply Franc Ramon June 5, 2017 at 6:28 am

    It’s every true that it’s more important how we see and not how we look. Sometimes, we need to take time, see things in perspective and appreciate people for who they are and what they mean to us. It’s a much better world with that. And yes, the chocolate pudding looks really yummy.

    You are a great mom. My late husband was 14 years older than I, and when I met him he was 4 years sober. But in the years before, he was in and out of treatments and put his mom through a lot. I thank God everyday that my kids know that their dad was an alcoholic and so far haven’t even tried alcohol. My daughter is 22 and my son is 19. I do worry about my son because his personality would be much more prone to it, but all I can do is trust God to take care of it. Thanks for sharing.

    I think we’re all different than we were and each year we grow a little more. Some grow for the better, some for the worse, but the key is to just keep going and asking God for help along the way.

    This is so beautiful, and very emotional! I think you’ve hit the nail on the head, none of us are the person we were five years ago, or even a year ago. I know that I will never be the person I was in my teens, or in my twenties, and I think realising that about other people is so important.

  • Reply Chubskulit Rose June 5, 2017 at 10:21 am

    This was such a great read. I saw that semi-colon again today. I’ve never given that much importance to the semi colon until it was given a new meaning. Sometimes we just go about our day, immersing ourselves in work trying to make a living and forgetting how it is to live. This has to change. You’ll never know how a simple smile, a pat on the back, a hug, and a “How are you today?” can save a life. Have a blessed rest of the day.

  • Reply Our Family World June 5, 2017 at 4:00 pm

    This is a wonderful read. It hurts to be ignored, and even if you have turned our back on the bad things that happened before, it seems like people cannot see the “new” person. They have judged harshly. As if people do not have the capacity to rectify their mistakes. This is the reason why I want my child to maintain open communication with me, regardless of her age. A mother can never turn her back on her child.

  • Reply Censie Sawyer June 5, 2017 at 4:04 pm

    Wow, such a powerful post. Addiction is a nightmare for everyone involved. Knowing what people go through is heartbreaking. And I agree with the other readers – mothers have a special bond with their babies – no matter the age.
    Saving this pudding recipe for later for sure.

    Addiction is a disease that affects so many people, not only the person drinking or doing drugs. There is so much about it, things to learn for the future. All you can do it be ready to be there for them as they decide to recover and to to rehab. Your words are so heartbreaking but true.
    On other topic the recipe looks yummy.

  • Reply Nicole Anderson June 5, 2017 at 6:07 pm

    I’m sure the chocolate pudding from it’s looks and from seeing the ingredients, method etc would be delicious and yummy food for all. However, what you shared prior to going into the chocolate pudding in my view was infinitely more valuable. What you described is food for thought and more so, food for the soul. You write beautifully and are extremely genuine and vivid in such a touching situation – one we could all learn something from. This is something I got a lot from personally. Thank you most sincerely.

  • Reply Tami June 5, 2017 at 6:31 pm

    That is a hard question to answer, the one where you ask us if we offer “the same grace to others that we’d want extended toward ourselves.” I want to say that I would and have but looking back, I don’t see where I have. I definitely want to change my motives and heart going forward.

  • Reply Chantal June 5, 2017 at 8:01 pm

    Addiction is something many people just don’t understand. Part of my schooling was related to understanding addiction and I am so thankful that you shared your story in such a raw way. Addiction is about so much more than drugs and alcohol. It’s about the people and the wide array of emotions that go with it (among many other things of course). Thank you for sharing. P.S. the pudding looks delicious!

    Well that is just beautiful. What if, right? What if we had another chance to show people that we’re so much different now. I think it’s possible if the world was more forgiving. Sigh. Chocolate is always good though especially in pudding form. YUM! What a way to calm an uneasy mind.

    This was a truly moving piece…I think every person battles their own type of addiction and some are more obvious than others, for better or for worse. I think the hardest thing to do is to try to understand the position of others..

    Addiction doesn’t just affect the person who is addicted it does affect everyone who touches that person. It can be so hard to deal with both as a loved one and as the one who is addicted. I hope this time he can overcome his addiction and start new. As for the chocolate pudding it looks fabulous and I would love to catch up with some old friends over this recipe.
