I am grateful for all the Houston and Harris County organizations that are helping people who need nutritional help. I will show my gratitude by making financial donations and make 50 bowls for the Houston Food Bank’s Empty Bowl event.
I am grateful for all the farmers and farm workers in the food supply chain who are keeping food on our table. I’m not sure how I will show my gratitude just yet. Any suggestions?
Grateful for technology like FaceTime. My family has been able to stay connected with my mom who has to completely self isolate due to Stage 4 Cancer. Being able to see her face everyday has kept us all going.

America and it’s people are a special breed. Never in the history of mankind has there ever been a more freedom loving, industrious, pragmatic and principled all inclusive tribe.

My chickens and the worms in my compost that I use to feed them, don’t know about the pandemic. They hang out and chill with me if I’m stressed or not, and talk to each other in the soothing clucking language that is both weird and wonderful.
When I look into my Husband’s eyes, I picture him all wrapped up like a magnificent gift... because, truly, that’s what he is to me and anyone who knows him. Every day I thank him for being the rock to my roll, and the sugar to my spice.
Three good things is a really good thing, and the people who dreamt it, wrote down notes on a piece of paper about it, created voodoo internet computer language that birthed it into being are also helping me remember to remember that good things stick like the sweetest honey to my soul.
