Let me brag about a friend

Meet our friend Matthew.  He sleeps outdoors right now, and he has dreams.  He doesn’t let the streets drag him down or close off his future.  One of those dreams was to get his first driver’s license.  This will open up doors for him, including a job that wants him.

Well, after six weeks of learning and practice, and despite a raging rainstorm, Matthew earned his license on the first try today.  Proud of you my friend!  Knew you could do it!

You should have seen the smile on Matthew’s face today, or felt the bear hug he gave out.  Accept this poor window onto that moment and smile.  (If you support HOME know that this, among many other things, is what your donation helps make possible.)

A very nice day, all-in-all.
