Today a former Mary Isaak Center resident came in to apply for a weekly food box. He radiated happiness, beaming with pride for being in transitional housing now and for the new job that got him there.
This gentleman worked hard while he lived at "Mary's House." I could always count on him to do more than was required. Even after he got the paid job that took much of his time, he showed up to do extra work. He wasn't afraid to use old-fashioned elbow grease, and I'm proud it took him to the next step in putting his life back together.
Before he left, he said that the dominoes in his life are falling uphill now; one good thing leads to another. It makes me happy to see him following this ascending path. May it continue to lead him to good places.
