For many years I’ve sat back and watched all the wandering souls who pass through the Garage. Some strong and some not so strong, but each caring and holding on to the little bit of what make us whole: compassion.

So many people don’t realize that it is the most important thing to have in life. It is the hand that holds your spirit. Without it you are broken, and once broken the pieces sometimes cannot be put back together.

I have been torn but not totally broken in my life. I try each and every day to bring a smile into another’s heart and let them know that they matter. It is from this that I’ve been able to stay strong and try to mend the downfalls of my life.

I’ve also gained a lot of strength from Kris, never taking on more than one day at a time. God bless!
