The bus routes in the middle of Sydney city have changed. As a result, I have to walk down a shopping mall where there are an inordinate amount of homeless people.

A quick scan of the signs in front of them, or they were holding, cited domestic violence, mental illness or just plain bad luck. A lot of them had pets. Mostly dogs but I also saw a mouse snacking on some food someone had left for them.


I chatted to a couple, gave my lunch money to one {and I wished I had enough to give them all} and walked away feeling like I am the luckiest girl in the world. I am so grateful every day for what I have.

    We take so much for granted, it’s good to have a reminder of this.
