Lynnette called me early this morning. She found her grand daughter in the city park in Puyallup, last night. She was with a girl named Nicole. The frustrating thing is the family called Nicole's house first because whenever Cierra was upset with her mom and step dad, she would go Nicole's house for a reprieve. Nicole lives with her father and when they called, the father swore up and down that Cierra was not there and that he had not seen her. Lynnette said that Cierra was reluctant to get into her car because she said she didn't want to go back and live with her mom and step dad at this time. So right now, the girl is with her grandma. This family still has a lot of issues to work out and Lynnette feels overwhelmed. She's already raised 3 girls, mostly by herself and to take on a 16 year old grand daughter at age 62, is a huge assignment. She is so very thankful for the thoughts and prayers but her final words to me this morning were..."please ask them to keep praying, I'm not sure I'm up to this (raising a teenage grand daughter)" Hopefully, they can get some family counseling and Cierra can go home to her mother and step dad and live in harmony.
It's a little cooler here today. When I got home from work the living room temperature was about 86 degrees. I've opened up everthing I can open and since there's a nice breeze (10-20 miles per hour) blowing out there...I'm hoping the house will be a little more comfortable tonight than it was last night.
Thank you again for your prayers and concern for my dear friend's grand daughter. I think it's so wonderful that we have this "electronic opportunity" to support each other thru the good times and the bad.
Until next time............Linda
