Remembering Mom. . .

Notes on Gratitude

I don't know how to make sense of the fact that three years to the day of your death, Bob, your partner of 25 years, is rehabilitating in the same place you were up until your death.

Our ability to feel grateful grows with patient practice, with taking the time to notice the events, people, places and things—big and small—that bring us peace, joy, and love.

Amy Ferris rocked my world!
(She kissed me, too, on the lips (and maybe a tooth or two), but that’s another story.)
