Sharing the lessons along the way…

I am in!


nanopoblano2015light

Because it is not about me, I generally only give the briefest version of my history of homelessness, illness, wheelchairs, nursing homes.  When asked specific questions, I have no issue sharing as long as it is beneficial.

When someone who is experiencing homelessness realizes that I have experienced homelessness, it often helps.  When they hear that I have a chronic illness, they often have trouble believing it, but sometimes it helps too.

Today was the first time I had quite this reaction to hearing these two tidbits about me:

“You mean I can benefit from your experience and expertise and skip the wheelchair and nursing home?  Sign me up!”

How is that for a Monday?!  How was your first Monday of November?

 

P.S. There is a blog challenge for the month of November my favorite Dino blogging friend has inspired me to attempt to complete.  The goal is to blog every day for the entire month.  Even on day two, I am feeling a bit unsure about it—but then again, I am posting something.

Stay tuned to see if I can come up with words that make sense every single day for the month of November!

  1. Crippled by my past mentally and emotionally, you never cease to amaze me. Thanks for all you do. And the voice you give to those (us) people.
