The WordPress format is really strange lately and I’m not even sure this post will go through… when the site is back to normal I’ll try to be a little more prolific with my blogging!

In the mean time, I want to share a quote that I read this morning – words of wisdom from Shawn, a homeless man in Boulder, CO, profiled on this morning.

“You want to create an atmosphere where people feel good about themselves…when you accomplish something, it makes you feel good inside. Most of us are trying to do the best we can. We made bad choices…but no one chooses to be homeless.”

Peace, Alicia

P.S. I’ve been having really good interactions with the children these past few weeks. I see again and again how God has changed my attitude and helped me be comfortable with initiating, but I continue to do best when I’m out of the group setting. Still learning, trying to love more; that about sums it up!
