On the Lam at Red Lobster!

We were laughing over crazy memories in a recent conversation with Lilly, and when we drove by a Red Lobster, she reminded  us of one little story that is not in the book, Chasing Lilly.

She was about fourteen, and had run off from the residential center where she was living. Somewhere along the way, she ended up barefoot and hungry. Very hungry. đŸ™‚ Giggling, she said,

“I hadn’t had food all day, and I saw a Red Lobster, and thought I’d go in and get some catfish. The lady asked me what I would like to order, and I ordered catfish, tilapia, and shrimp! I ate and ate, then I got a big piece of this chocolate dessert. I was so full! When she brought me the bill and set it on the table, I was afraid and hid in the bathroom. Then the police came and got me.”

I am so glad that Lilly can laugh at these things now. That has helped her to heal  and move on. She is doing reasonably well, and we are proud of her growth in many areas. -Nealie
