Are Our Hearts Homeless?

Not all beautiful structures are pristine… 


Some are abandoned and old…

With steel corsets covering their bodies, holding them together…

 Raw but still worthwhile…

Even through a journey of rotten timber to walk on- forever it seems…

And are still designated National Historic Landmarks, with millions of dollars pouring in to save it, restore it, make it right- like this hurricane ravaged school campus. 


So…What about her?

Don’t forget the reason for the season.
Take care of each other.

  • Amy Flory - My daughter’s preschool does a donation drive for a homeless men’s shelter in November and December. I love that she gets to feel the blessing of giving and that it highlights a somewhat forgotten segment of our community. Thank you for your reminder!ReplyCancel

    • A Pleasant House - THANK YOU! This continues to be a very real problem in our cities. It especially breaks my heart when I see women or women/children. Your daughters preschool is amazing!ReplyCancel

  • William Kendall - Up here we have it as well. I think agencies such as your suggestion are the way to go for donating.ReplyCancel

  • A Pleasant House - The problem is universal. Here, in New Orleans, when the restaurants close, the kitchens hand-out any leftovers, so at least many homeless are eating gourmet. Sounds like a nice thing- but it brings many homeless people TO the city. Double edged sword.ReplyCancel

  • Sue - I am sheltered from this living in the western suburbs of Chicago where I don’t see many Homeless save one last year hanging around he grocery reported to be sleeping in the bushes across the street. Thank you for the reminder during the Holidays and all days of course.ReplyCancel

    • A Pleasant House - Living in a city they are as thick as the bushes you describe. Some have regular spots and times, others are with dogs, some look like the ‘guy next door’. All have a sad story, are usually mentally ill, or some kind of addict. Problem is a buck or two won’t solve a thing but does get them a ‘fix’, but I still have my hand out with a bill from the car window every damn day. Sometimes food. The other day I drove a diabetic man home who had fallen in a pot hole and was confused. Thank God I had a candy bar in the car. What a World.ReplyCancel

  • Barbara Coleman - I love the thought of buying one of those old structures and repurposing it as a home. I like the thought that we all can be repurposed too.ReplyCancel

    • A Pleasant House - Nicely put Barbara. I like that thought too. I think many times buildings are easier accomplished in this purpose then the people we see on the street. So sad.ReplyCancel
