Many times in life, we take things for granted and don’t realize how blessed we are for having food on our table, a roof over our head, and family and friends to turn to when we need it the most.
Sadly, we only start counting our blessings when we witness something bad taking place or when we lose something we once loved.
Daeyr Neely is just 8 years old, but he has gone through many struggles in life.
When he was still just a toddler, Daeyr’s mother lost her job and had a hard time making ends meet so they ended up on the streets. After many failed attempts, they finally managed to move into a shelter home with the intention of receiving help from the government to secure housing for them.
Getting used to the life at the shelter wasn’t easy for Daeyr. The change affected his performance at school and he felt insecure. “He started to have a little trouble in school, once we moved to the shelter. But I explained to him that we had to do this in order to get our own home,” his mother told Spot Light Stories.
It took quite some time, but the family finally received a home to call their own.
However, although they now had a house, they still missed almost all of the essentials, including beds, so Daeyr was forced to sleep on a pile of blankets.
When their story spread around the new neighborhood, staff at the organization Humble Home heard of this family and decided to step in. With their help, the house started feeling like home.
Among the rest, they got a bed for the young boy and his reaction was priceless and worth all the effort at decorating the place.
The video of Daeyr realizing he has a bed to sleep on is so touching, it brings tears of joy.
At first, he has his hands over his eyes, but once he sees his new room, he can’t hide his excitement and hugs the person standing nearest to him.
Sweet Daeyr received a bunch of toys and other furniture, something he hadn’t had until that very moment.
Now that they have a roof over their head, mom Dionna can focus on her nursing school.We truly hope she would be able to find a nice job and start her and her son’s life over.
We wish this family only the best life brings.
