I bought a couple cards for Rip. I haven't told you about Rip (I don't think). Rip was at the Boy's Home (BHHB) my son runs. Wayne took a special interest him and he spent Thanksgiving and Christmas with our family. He has been in a foster home with the youth minister from Wayne's church and his wife for almost a year. A few weeks ago he was feeling overwhelmed and really doesn't have the interpersonal skills to know how to share these feelings with anyone due to his past life of abuse and neglect by his parents. So he attempted suicide.
Then Rip had to be admitted to a "Behavioral Health Center" after sitting in a room in the hospital for 94 hours because they had no where to send him. (Ya think we got a Health Care Crisis???). Today his Mother, who is a prostitute and on drugs is SUPPOSED to sign a paper relinquishing her parental rights. Please pray that she does so that she doesn't have to be involved in every decision about Rip's life.
Back to the Perfect Day.....I got to sit outside and read a totally terrific book while the birds twittered and cawed, the sun shone, a breeze breezed and leaves drifted down all around me. Later I quilted and then went back to my outdoor hacienda for more fall wonder.
Oh and we had turkey sandwiches for lunch....yummo!
What would be a perfect day for you?
