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.
