I opened and old backpack of Beth's yesterday. I was going to give it to my little niece. It was disgusting when I found drug paraphanalia in there. Long neckd tweasers, long necked scissors, curtain pins and an eye dropper all in a nice little case. I put the back pack out for the trash instead of giving it away.
Later in the day I opened all the compartments in the back pack. At that point I found goggles and a biology notebook. It suddenly occured to me that what I found before was a dissecting kit for the biology course that Beth was taking the last time she lived at home!
Today, she called me from a laundromat where she had recharged her cellphone. It sounded like there was a hell of a party going on. She sounded happy maybe just a little too happy.
It seems to me it is natural to have these suspicions. They probaby will not go away for a long time. Nevertheless I do not want to over react to my own suspicions. There are bound to be times that I think she is telling a lie but she is not. That does not mean that I have to give her a hard time about it. If it is really my business I will verify the facts. If not, like today I will find comfort in what my sponsor says......"That which you need to know will come to you without any furthur effort or action on your part."
Take care all,
