Welcome Home Everyone!!
We have passed the longest night and summer is just around the corner…definitely makes me feel a little less depressed!!
Last time I thought, write about thankfulness and being grateful for things and this week I had so many instances of people with problems, a lot bigger than my, who crossed my path!
One of our guests lost her husband, one young mother needed a place to stay urgently as her situation at home became unbearable, another one of our guests battle with diabetes and an acquaintance’s husband is fighting with cancer that is spreading…
The gratefulness and being thankful message is a difficult one to promote when people are in the midst of crisis like this.
How do we pull through, how do we make ourselves get out of bed every morning?
Usually it helps to find that goal, or that forgotten bucket list item and start with something new to take the focus away from the struggles. Find people to trust and to help you de-clutter your thoughts and life…each one of us should have stretcher bearers, to support us and help us to the bath of Bethesda when the water is stirred by the angels…
Be that stretcher bearer for someone if you are in the lucky group!
Helping someone might become a goal on its own!
Find joy in sharing, share your troubles or share a troubled soul’s burden –
But in the end…
Be thankful and grateful
Be the best you, in spite of circumstances.
