Tomorrow is the day I meet Lee and Vikki ( with Ben) to start a new journey in his life. There is no way to completely make things all right for my brother.
I feel like I am dropping off one of my children on the first day of school and pray he makes friends and starts to acclimate to his new surroundings.
I am completely mentally and emotionally drained-trying to keep a happy upbeat demeanor while Ben is withdrawing.
Susan and I met at Ross yesterday and picked up sheets, pillows, bedspreads, towels, shower curtains… to have the room looking inviting while we keep adding more personal items from family.
Outside his room, Libby, I put up your Vietnam visual poster and his book on Vietnam as a visual guide to let him know he has arrived at his room!
He has a beautiful view outside his window.
One of his highlights came Saturday evening… when a dear friend called and asked if she could treat Ben to supper. I don’t know who was more excited …me with a few hours of free time or Ben with his night out! Thank you from the bottom of my heart Toni!
So until tomorrow-just when God knows we have reached our emotional breaking point … here comes his guardian angels!
