My mom's homeless
Tuesday, February 24, 2009
My mom came back from the Philippines today & she's homeless. This is _not_ a surprise; she knew even before her trip she'd have no apartment to return to. She didn't make prior arrangements & we don't know where she's going to stay. I looked up some hotel rooms for her but hope it won't come to that. She's resourceful & has close friends & some family in town. I hope she's able to set her pride aside & ask for help.
What's funny to me is that I feel less of an urge to emotionally eat over this; I've stuffed my face for smaller stressors. If I can make it through something like this without reaching for junk, then I can get through anything.
Prayers & positive wishes for a successful outcome appreciated. Thanks.
