"poor no more/bus stories"

A very friendly woman and her young boy boarded the bus yesterday.  She had a book in her hands that I used to own.

She said "What do you mean you USED to own it"

I said: "Because I lost nearly everything while I was homeless"

The book is called the creative spirit.  She is hoping that writing children't books will get her out of poverty.  She said "I'm getting out of poverty.  I will not raise my kids like this"  "POOR NO MORE" she said emphatically.

I saw myself in her, as I was convinced that hard work would get me out of poverty.  I sure hope I can help her.  We did exchange phone numbers.
