Below are a few stories that have caused some of those sappy outbursts in my head.
This Helps Me
I just moved out of my home and had made arrangements for another place. When I arrived I found that I didn’t get the apartment. It is very upsetting because I was told I would have the place and now I am homeless.
I will find another place. There is a purpose for everything, for that I thank God. The storytelling class and people in this class help me to know that soon I will get another place. Coming here to the senior center helps me to stay strong. Prayer keeps me going. Writing helps me.
A Great Fortune
Hello Everyone. Actually I don’t have too much to write or tell…
I am very fortunate that I've started coming to this class at the senior center. The people here are wonderful. I wish that I did not live too far from here, otherwise I would surely love to be here more.
I like to come here as often as I can.
The First Time I’ve Been Happy
This month is the first time I have been happy since April. I’ve been real sad because my family split up. I feel good because Carolyn is helping me find a place that I need so bad.
Also I saw my grandson, who is away, for the first time in five months. I was so happy to see him.
I am glad I came to the center. It gives me something to do. I’ll be glad when I get my own place. I never had my own place, just me alone. I am excited. I had a nice time last week at Temple University on our field trip to see Bill Cosby. I am glad I came to the center. Everyone is so nice.
