Today and every day I am thankful for the friends and family who keep checking in, who pray for us, who send me articles (even if they are scary ones), who read my blog, who sometimes even send cash. So many great friends who keep me going, make me laugh, help me keep things in perspective. Who read the things I write to them about what is going on here and just respond calmly, like what I said actually made some kind of sense.
Friends around the world
Send love, calm, laughter, courage,
Strength for one more day.
Birdtober? Gratiku? What's up with me and these made-up words and daily posting? Well, I've learned that a tiny little burst of creativity each day helps keep me going, stops me from being entirely fixated on the mess. That's why I post daily photos on Facebook. And that's why I'm doing these writing projects. This one is a daily haiku about something I'm thankful for. (A gratitude haiku - get it?) As long as the internet keeps working, I'm going to try to post one every day in November.
