To be completely honest, the hangouts that I do at the homeless shelter are not all sunshine and rainbows. They get peppered with all the variability of the ups and downs of my personal
thinking, including what I make up about what’s working, what’s not working, how I can often feel inadequate for the task, and why I “think” the hangouts can sometimes be challenging to do.
But one of the things that I just LOVE about the work at the shelter, is all of the unexpected ways in which I see human wisdom
and wellbeing rising to the surface, allowing the clients to survive another day through often very unfavourable circumstances. And so along with seeing the daily miracles of their innate resilience, many of which I likely miss noticing, there sometimes
appears some examples of the “every-day-miraculous” that have me pondering the wonders and workings of the universe.
