Bob has been so content with his beads lately that Sheri made the mistake of trying to work on cleaning out the garage last Saturday. The garage is only a few steps from the house and Sheri was checking on him often. At some point "Al" got disoriented and realized he did not know what to do or where anybody was and fear set in. When Sheri popped back in expecting to see "Al" singing along to Daniel O'Donnell, she found Bob angrier than she has ever seen demanding to know what was going on and why no one was telling him anything. Sheri knows her routine and everyone guiding Bob through his day keeps "Al" grounded... but even she did realize just how much.
Sheri needs to pause, praise, pray... and plan.
