This may sound funny to some, but yesterday I walked out to see this on my car (cat footprints) and it made me think of the homeless in our area. You see, the stray cats in our neighborhood can be miserable this time of year because it gets so cold at night – so they will often park themselves on our car when we get home for the heat from the engine. Yet, how many people in our city, or our world for that matter, do not have the option of parking themselves somewhere for warmth?
This is what our neighborhoods have looked like in the past few weeks – treacherous if there is no warm place to lay your head.
And I imagine, if someone is cold and homeless, sometimes the little things, like a bowl of warm soup and a loving person, can make all the difference in the world.
Today, 31 days ’til 40, I am reminded of the homeless in my area and the world, and challenge myself to do more to reach out, and remember how fortunate I am.
