I was speaking to a former homeless person a couple weeks ago.
He recently was employed and had found a place to live. His life had turned around, so happy and grateful, so optimistic for a different future.
He knew I occasionally put together little gift sacks for homeless in Arvada.
He invited me to the restaurant where he now worked as a cook for a free meal. Being from the south he was excited to be making waffles and fried chicken again!
I wasn’t sure these gift sacks were doing any good. I realized his wonderfully positive and infectious cheerful energy has stayed with me since that day. The benefit turned out to be mine……
What’s in my gift sacks this month? Socks, washcloth and liquid soap, and a variety of snacks.
