Although a small group of people overall are actually homeless, many are without a place to call home.
Feeling homeless and being homeless can be the same or it can be quite different.
Everyone , every person, every being ,whether they admit it or not, needs to feel there is a place that is home, that is safe, that is peaceful.
For some this so called home in a garden, or a park or in their physical house. Some find it in a religious or spiritual place or worship. Some find it in a bar and some find it on a website.
Over the past year , I personally have been working with my sister, building a website a place to share and place to learn and a place to find comfort. This website https://whitebearsworld.com is still in progress but it main focus is for children and their families that have a rare or chronic disease, to share their stories and learn from one another. A place to share ups and downs and a place to offer new found information(medical)
Also in this past year I have spent a good part of the year in the hospital with my daughter, who has VACTERL Syndrome. Over their year I found it impossible to work and properly care for her, my son and myself. We would physically be homeless if not for the kindness of my family , we are staying at my Dads house while we figure out of next move.
Life is crazy and hectic sometimes and recently I have realized how important being home is.
Having that safe zone. Knowing people care if I am ok.
I wish that for everyone, although running into a very old friend whom was holding a sign looking for help getting food. He is not only emotionally homeless but physically homeless as well.
It broke my heart to see and I felt even worse that I have no way to help.
Please always send kind wishes to others as many many are physically or emotionally homeless.
Hoping as https://whitebearsworld.com, unfolds it will offer some comfort for others fighting rare and chronic disease to feel like they have someone, even a stranger who cares to know they are ok
