Yes, I know it’s Christmas Eve. But, I have decided to focus on Christmas Present tomorrow since it actually Christmas Day then and forget Christmas Future. How the heck do I know what the future will bring?
I read two articles today that contradicted each other. These were news articles, by the way.
The first said the Homeless Shelters are turning people away because they are to crowded, despite the cold weather.
The 2nd said we should stop passing out bags to the Homeless with food or whatever because it deters them from going to the Shelters for help.
Okay, here’s the thing:. Most Homeless Shelters aren’t that close to each other. Plus, you just admitted you are turning people away. Most people who are begging either cannot or don’t want to walk to far away from their home base.
If I want to give a Care Package out my car (Okay, a friend’s car) window to someone in need, I will! I have given Blankets, Hats, Socks and Scarves in the past which is the same thing the Shelters give, if the people can get there.
To ask for monetary donations puts these specific groups in charge of the Homeless Situation, and if you ask me, they obviously aren’t doing that good a job, anyway!
Tonight is Christmas Eve here in the states and the child in me is coming out as it does every year and I am tracking Santa Clause on the NORAD Tracker App.
While, I am an Adult, I still like to use my imagination and listen for Reindeer Hooves and Sleigh Bells as I drift off to sleep.
I wish you all a Wonderful and Blessed Christmas Eve, however you celebrate!
