A friend of mine told me a little while ago that I am lucky in some really important ways, even though it is sometimes hard to see that.

I responded that I have no trouble seeing it at all, and my hope is that even when I am overwhelmed with grief, I am never too overwhelmed to see how fortunate I am in so many ways.

This photo taken during today’s Thanksgiving Day hike is a perfect example.

So much missing.

So much to be grateful for.
