  1. Beautiful. Kimmie. Great, easily-actionable advice.

    1. Hi, Norah. Yes, easily actionable. We don't have much to give ourselves, but anything (even a smile) is better than nothing :)

  2. A journey of a thousand miles starts with just one step.

    1. Lovely quote, Liv. I may use it on a future Just-a-Quote post :)

      Thanks for hopping over. Kimmie.

  3. Hi Kimmie,

    Having worked with the homeless, the rough sleepers, in Stoke on Trent, helping just one of those remarkable people can make a world of difference in this often indifferent world.

    Hugs and hope,

    1. Hi Gary. How lovely. I imagine the work was incredibly rewarding. You've a good heart!

      Hugs and hope back, my friend. I hope things are as well as can be with you at the mo.

  4. How very true, and not just for the homeless aspect. If you can help just one of anyone in need then that's great. Thank you for sharing.

    1. Absolutely, anyone in need! Thanks for hopping over Amanda :)

  5. I really like that slogan Kimmie and will use it in rhyme even.

  6. The Destitute Itinerant

    Sheltered in a doorway room
    Open house to passers by
    Hoping that the wind and rain
    Has found somewhere else to cry
    Memories of different days
    Unwelcome on these nights
    Hunger cramps are draining me
    Turning out my flickering lights
    They call me lost without ambition
    Just because I’m down at heel
    I save and plan my every penny
    For a warm space and a meal
    Like a ship without a compass
    In waters rocky spying land
    It all looks so bright inviting
    But I dismiss it out of hand
    No one waits for me I’m homeless
    Shelters anywhere will do
    I’ll sleep with both eyes searching
    Until morning light shines through
    Too many shapes of homelessness
    Down and out nowhere to run
    No magic wand to help them all
    Can we just begin with one
