I've heard it said that we have a lot of "social capital.
This country is indeed a place where people care about one another. It is easy to feel safe here....loved and nourished!
My heart-felt prayer is that everyone, everywhere, might feel (and be!) safe, have wonderful community, and have enough good food to eat and enjoy.
May we all be friends and active allies to one another,
and to our beloved Planet Earth!
May we gratefully receive--and say "yes"--to all that is given.
And share it abundantly!

It's easy to be thankful for the good things.
A life of rich fulfillment comes to those who
are also thankful for the setbacks.
Gratitude can turn a negative into a positive.
Find a way to be thankful for your troubles,
and they can become your blessings.
