    When Holly was younger, she noticed that her mom drank a lot. The drinking usually led to anger. They lived in a small town - more like a village - and all of their friends and neighbors knew about Holly's mom and her problem.

    One night, there was a power outage at their house. Holly's dad was out of the country for work, so it was just Holly, her mom and her sister in the house. As they were hanging out in their living room, they heard a knock on the door. Holly went to go see who it was, and she was confused when she saw the police. They asked to speak with her mother, so Holly and her sister walked into another room. They heard screaming and shouting on the other side of the house - their mother was refusing counselling and denied having a problem. Holly and her sister were so afraid. That was the first time that they realized what drinking did to their mom.

    Shortly after that, Holly and her family moved to America. One night, Holly's mom completely disappeared. No one knew where she was, and Holly, her sister and her father all started to panic. They drove around all night looking for her and called all her friends. Later that night, they found her lying in the closet - passed out from drinking. They were all devastated, and they knew she needed help with her mental health.

    The next day, they went to a hospital and checked her mom into a program. Holly's mom had to stay at the hospital for six months and, as much as it pained them to be without her, her family supported her mom's recovery. They had no choice really, their mom had to go away to get help. It was one of those scary stories that you never thought would happen to you. They missed her very much and they couldn't wait for her to come home.

    Finally, Holly's mom was able the leave hospital and come home. She made so many amazing changes, and it was like she was a completely new person. Holly couldn't be more proud of the person she became, and she completely looked up to her mom for making such a dramatic change. She realized that, in order for her to get better, her mom had to go away.

    Today, Holly's mom continues to be an amazing parent and role model. She is Holly's hero.

                                                    you only believe in God when something bad is happening to you or your family 🤦
