Today I am grateful for:

  1. Evening showers. I’m often too tired to take them, but dragging myself in to wash away the day and then crawling into bed all fresh and clean makes it easier to turn the worry off and drift. I’m looking forward to it tonight.
  2. Pain. I worked out this morning and took a long walk in the evening. My body is worn out and very sore and though it hurts I know that somewhere along all these bones and between all these tendons new muscle is being made and it feels good.
  3. Cell phone cameras. If it weren’t for the fact that nearly everyone has one in their pocket Amy Cooper would not have been fired from her job for her attempt to intimidate Christian Cooper and four police officers would not have lost their jobs for their role in the murder of George Floyd. The videos can often be infuriating or traumatic to watch, but it good and right that we look at the things that are hard to see and remember.
