As nwas starting to wake up this morning, seeing that it was still dark, I thought it was about 5:00 AM. I couldn’t believe it when I looked at the clock and saw it was 6:45. I ate breakfast, got some work done and this is what the front courtyard looked like at 9:45 AM.
Days of fires have become weeks of fires as new fires continue to start. This is another night where I feel some guilt with my gratitude. I saw the bad air and had the privlidge of deciding not to leave the house. I had the privlidge of being safe in the house with a full refridgerator and devices that allowed me to do my work, communicate with friends, family, and clients with the bonus of being entertain myself.
It’s tough out there and I’m grateful for the essential workers who are making our communities work as well as they’re working. Our mailman got to our house at about noon, having to deal with this all day. Tomorrow is grocery day and Lucky’s will be stocked up with everything we need.
For those of us who are healthy and safe, please count your blessings. For those of you on the front lines, keeping us safe and making sure we have what we need, I send you my gratitude. I hope you know how appreciated you are.
Whatever life brings you tomorrow, please find things that make you grateful. I’d delighted if you would take some time to write your comments below. Let me know what you’re grateful for so we can find that shining needle of common ground in that haystack of fear.
