Finding Gratitude in Uncertain Times

"All that we are facing is difficult, there is no doubt about that. But it is also true that whatever else is going on in the world, there is also the most beautiful kindness and a sense of collective camaraderie. We’re one tribe once more. One heart.

There is something quite beautiful about that and I hope we remember the feeling when this has all passed."

Because there is always hope, whether it is a thing with feathers, a single step forward, or a buried seed deep within the soil."
