This one goes out to Gregory and his faithful feline cuddle partner, Mario.
Love Bombs, as I mentioned in my post last week, are a weekly coming-together of people on the internet to post messages of encouragement and compassion to strangers who are struggling through some hardships in their life. One comment on a blog post: Anyone can do it, and a little love can go a long way. This week’s Love Bombing to Gregory was recommended by Liz, who had this to say:
I would recommend a really amazing guy…Gregory Patrick. I discovered him on Etsy. I have a little shop selling handmade purses and I came across his lovely little knit bears and purses one day as I was looking around. I then found that he had a blog and went over to check it out. To my amazement and dismay, this great knitting artist, with a heart of gold, has been constantly facing homelessness for the past year. He seems to find temporary places to stay, but with Etsy being his only income he never seems to find a home he can afford to keep for very long.
In his blog, I have read about his heartbreak, loneliness and his constant hope for something more permenant and secure. He always speaks from the heart and I know that he just wants a chance to grow his knitting business, live peacefully with his cat Mario and just keep spreading love with his adorable knit bears. I think an outpouring from Love Bomb would be a amazing surprise for Gregory and such positive energy would only help him to keep moving forward against the tough times he keeps encountering.
