Our Daily Bread Employment Center

It has been a little over a year since I have even stepped foot inside of the Harry & Jeanette Weinberg Housing & Resource Center. Thanks to my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, and my on again/off again boyfriend, Richard Hunt, I have had a warm place to lay my head each and every night. I'm taking control of my finances by waking up every afternoon and catching the 22 Bus to my grueling and tiring job at McDonald's.  I'm taking control of my health by taking my antiviral drugs everyday as prescribed.  I'm mending relationships old and new. I'm truly taking control of my life. I'm not perfect and I'm nowhere close to where I want to be just yet but I'm definitely headed in the right direction. All I can do is take one step at a time like Jordin Sparks and remain a humble and honest person. I'm putting all my trust in the Lord because I know that he has already prepared the way, I just have to take heed.

I recently saw the movie, The Pursuit of Happyness, starring Will Smith. It's been all of a few years since I've seen the film (I actually have the DVD) and it really struck a nerve more so that it did the first few times I watched it. I'm quite sure it's because I'm truly living the same experience. I've finally experienced a traumatic low point in my life where I really didn't see any sign of hope and miraculously and out of nowhere the holes in my life began to mend on their own. When I first saw The Pursuit of Happyness, I had no idea how it was to live inside of a homeless shelter and now I do and I've made it through to the other side. The end of this saga hasn't come yet and I have not been able to truly say that I've found happyness but I can say that I'm moving one day closer to my dreams. I just hope and pray that I stay on track this time.
