Lotus House is a very worthy charity, sheltering homeless women and providing services that are really needed. Please join me in supporting Lotus House.
Nevertheless, I have a roof over my head; clothes on my back; enough money to pay the electricity bill; and family and friends who love and support me unconditionally. And I recognize that because of this, I'm very lucky.
I've been thinking about the homeless woman I used to pass on my morning runs when I first moved to Miami four years ago. In those pre-dawn hours, she'd be huddled in a doorway. And sometimes, I see her during the day, shuffling along the street or sitting at a nearby bus stop, wearing the same tattered black hoodie, regardless of the weather. And then, suddenly, about a year ago, she simply wasn't there anymore. I wondered if she'd found another neighborhood. "Where do you think she is now?" I asked my husband. I hoped she'd got help and was off the streets. I still don't know. But I hoped.
