Help Keep People who are Homeless Warm with a Warming Center!
Portsmouth and the Seacoast Area have people who are homeless living on the streets. Portsmouth can have severe cold and stormy weather in the winter. Let’s help people who are homeless get a break from severe cold and stormy weather by providing them with a 24 hour warming center in Portsmouth.
Imagine if it were you, being out in the below freezing weather, day after day, with no way to warm your body but to keep moving or to try and find enough blankets and maybe a tent to try to sleep. This wears down a person’s body and soul!
Portsmouth can do better, WE are better than this! Provide a 24 hour warming center and show that you care about those less fortunate as being as much deserving of a warm place to lay their heads as anyone!
It is sometimes difficult to face the fact that aging brings on so many changes in one’s everyday life. But, these changes bring challenges. Some of these challenges can be faced head on, others may be ignored, denied, put off until later, or just too difficult to know what to do. I can’t say I face them all head on and I certainly try not to ignore them. It seems sometimes they come one at a time, but sometimes they can come one right after the other or many at one time.
Reaching out for help, for advice, for instruction can be a challenge in itself. But to respond to your own needs for help is essential to creating a sense of well-being within yourself, to know you can trust yourself to do what is best. This sense of trusting yourself leads you to trusting others. And trusting others leads to trusting the process. You can’t have one without the other. It is a matter of balance. Balancing the challenges we carry by allowing others to help you whether you are standing tall or taken down by a fall. You will get up again. Sometimes you will get up by yourself, and sometimes with the help of others. Sometimes those that help will do the bare minimum to help, and others will go far and beyond to help. Some will fall somewhere in between. I find all types useful. But those that go far and beyond are those that are not forgotten.
All along the way, you meet wonderful people that help you by accepting you, as they are in the same boat as you. Doesn’t mean they have to accept you but they do. They make those challenges something you look forward to. That was how I saw all the people in my balance class on Wednesdays from 10:30 to 1:30 for 10 weeks. I will miss balance class…
Please feel free to re-post as it will circulate better that way. 🙂
