~ feeling better today after a challenging day yesterday

~ call scheduled with my daughter in London tomorrow -- missing her & having mama worries during these times of chaos

~ The Book of Joy continues to be a challenge and a joy. The chapter on generosity was particularly thought-provoking. If you haven't read it, I highly recommend it!

~ deciding to join the protests this weekend in spite of fears re: COViD. This is perhaps the only thing worth risking it.

~ organizing a shower of love for my parents' 69th wedding anniversary this month -- phone calls, Zoom visits and cards. Making a video to help them celebrate.
