Have you ever been called from someone you can't hear? Your thoughts tell you something isn't right and you need to make them right. You struggle with the empathy you're feeling in your soul and you know you need to step up to the plate and help when no one else will. You pray for guidance to help you make the right decision.
I answered the call yesterday. We took in a 18 year old boy who's homeless. He's had a hard life and wants nothing more than to graduate from high school next month and go to a community college this Fall. My son happily rearranged his room to help accommodate the change. My husband is helping him get a job. I'm mothering him and getting him organized for life as an adult.
I know I can't save the world or feed the starving millions, but I can help one boy make a change for the better. Does it puff up my ego? No. Does it make me feel like a saint? No.
I have to do it because no one else will and because I can.
