Attitude of Gratitude – Day 2 — Shelter from the storm and out-of-the-box thinkers

 

Today I am grateful for shelter, for warmth; for a roof over my head and heat in my home as we face a huge snowstorm and some of the coldest days in years.  And because i live with the spirit of Ubuntu, and I know my joy is tied to the joy of others, I am saddened by the numbers of people who will spend these next days without shelter from the storm.

But I am also grateful for the state of Utah.  Did you know that by the end of 2015, the state of Utah will come close to completely eliminating homelessness in their state?  It’s an amazing story, one brought about by people willing to think outside the box and still find ways to address issues AND save taxpayers money.  A win-win.  Jesus would like this.  Read more about it here :   How do you end homelessness?

I am grateful for out-of-the-box thinkers who helped my fellow humans lift themselves out of homelessness and into possibilities. That warms my heart on this cold, cold day.
