“We are only doing this for 30 days,” dad told me this morning. “They say doing anything for 30 days makes it a habit.”
Dad sat in the den as I washed my hair and took a shower. I also brushed my teeth and shaved. We had eaten breakfast earlier – a fruit cup and biscuits and bacon. I relished this time with my father.
“Is that a tear in your eye?” dad asked after my exertions as we sat in the den watching t.v.
“I needed help,” I told him. “And you were there for me. I just need some encouragement. A reason for living.”
Dad gave me a hug and left to go back home. Today is his day off and he plans to spend it working in his yard. He also has to keep his yard man J.W. busy as well.
