Jo-Ann: This sounds like a wonderful idea. I would appreciate it if you all would say a prayer for my eldest daughter. I think that she is about to hit rock bottom. She is drinking and using drugs. Someone told me this evening that they had heard that she is selling herself to get money for her habit. Now I don't know if this is true or not as our little community loves to gossip. School starts on Monday and I don't want her calling and upsetting the girls nor me. Also, this tough love is going to be getting very difficult if she no longer has a place to live. Not that I will let her come back here but when I say "NO" then she uses the girls and physical violence as threats.
Jo-Ann, What a good idea. I will be praying from here.
Ladies: I just received a call from one of my "adopted" dd's. This young lady has very little family. Her Aunt Janie, who is a nurse and in her late 40's, was in a horrible car accident this morning in Springfield, Mo. She was in the passenger seat and their car was hit, broad side, by another one traveling at 70 mph. Almost every bone in her body is broken. Her neck is broken where you bend it. Both of her arms, legs, pelvis, facial bones, back etc are broken. She has lost one eye. They have put her in a full body cast at the moment just to make sure that she doesn't move. They are hoping to put a halo on her later today but at this moment they are just trying to stabilize her. They have called in a specialist from St. Louis. Please remember her not only in our prayers tomorrow but now and after.
