Journal Reflections of a Former Teen Guest of FPL

December 25, 2012

This is probably one of the worst Christmas’ ever.  Homeless and don’t have a place to stay.  I hate it so much.  Haven’t had a nice good home cooked meal for about a month.  Eating out is starting to get boring, McDonald’s double cheese burgers are starting to look and get sloppy and nastier by the minute.  I just am ready for our own crib.  This staying with family of friends’ thing isn’t really my cup of tea.  I’m just ready for something new.

Call It Beautiful by Shaun LePage

Some say, “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.” I get that. I won’t dispute it. But, beauty is also in the eye of the one with understanding. Looking at Family Promise from the outside, you might think it’s just another service provider. Just a program. But I’ve had the chance over the past several months to take a closer look. I’ve discovered something I didn’t see at first: Beauty.
