Re: 1,000 positive stepping stones on the path to healing ( 02:11:04 TueDec 9 2003 ) |
Hewho ... it absolutely counts as a positve that you are staying out of trouble. Keep up the good work!
I had a lovely chat with my father yesterday. It was just like old times. We laughed, joked vand made each other happy. It seems that the prognosis is indeed very good. Nevertheless, our recent differences pale in comparison to his current health concerns.
Last week, my boss rushed to the hospital in regards to one of her daughters. Her drug addicted daughter, who has a 5 yr old, had just had a baby. Boss didn't even know her daughter was pregnant. No one in the family did. The baby was born with meth and THC in her blood. Of course, both children were taken away from their mother by the state. Boss took a day off and cobbled together a plan with the other grandmother to care for the children and took the plan to court. Boss bought a crib and all of the stuff a newborn babe needs for her to care for her in her home.
On Friday, I found out that the daughter had been homeless. I felt so sad for the 5 yr old. She had been homeless, hadn't been in school, her mother has disappeared, she has a brand new sister, and is being shuffled between grandparents. My heart broke.
I figured the poor little mite probably didn't have a thing to her name. I had great fun over the weekend putting together a "Big Sister" gift for her. I picked up for her a newborn baby doll (to cuddle or vent on), a couple of books, a Barbie and clothes, some small packs of mini M&Ms and a little carton of Pepperidge Farm "Goldfish." I put them all in a net zipper bag so she could take it with her.
I was a bit apprehensive about giving it to Boss for her granddaughter. When I gave it to Boss this morning, she was very touched. Come to find out, the granddaughter had NOTHING of her own. I had tears in my eyes. Boss gave me a hug and told me that I'm special.
Whatever my mother wasn't as a mother, she wasn't addicted to drugs. I did have a home. I did have toys. I did go to school. I did have my own possessions. I've also had a really tough time financially the last 18 months. I feel so good that I seized the opportunity to make life a little better for a little girl.
