From Woman's Day. Not long ago, a young mother emboldened by the anonymity of the internet copped to her drinking problem in the comment section of a popular blog. The blog she was reading, One Good Thing , isn't a blog for recovering alcoholics per se, but its creator, Jill Nystul, started it as her passion project after completing rehab 10 years ago.

Since then, she's made it her mission to let people know they're not alone. Until I got into rehab and I realized it can happen to anyone. Reader comments like the one above aren't an anomaly.
At the start of each month, I love to set out a few of our favorite books for that month. I bought this machine for their wedding open house, because their colors included navy blue, and Nate loves Jelly Bellies. Her dad invites her to focus on doing one good thing at a time. He promises her one jelly bean for every good thing she does. She decides to fill up a jar with jelly beans.
While researching this post I became an affiliate for the book- this means that I receive a commission for any books sold through the links on my blog. I only post affiliate links for things I feel I can honestly recommend. This book is fabulous if I make a commission or not! Oh, this book! I love it! First, the illustrations are gorgeous.
