I am so thankful for so many things in my life right now. I am always thinking about how blessed I am. I am not rich, nor do I have everything I could ever want, but I am safe, healthy and happy. Not everyone has this in their lives.
There was this homeless lady that stayed outside of my window at work. She had the most crazy setup I have ever seen a homeless woman have. We talked about her at work quite often and wondered what her story was.
Today the police came because someone called to complain. The street she stays on is only used for construction so I am pretty sure that some douche bag who doesn't care about Thanksgiving called her in. I believe my coworker is going to try to get her to a shelter for the homeless or something this weekend. I wanted to help, so I moved one of her carts (which honestly must have weighted 90lbs) a couple of blocks away so that she could make sure nothing was stolen. Apparently several things of hers have been stolen in the past.
Not everyone can help someone like I did today, but if you have an opportunity to do so, please do. This is the time of year it means most.
