Gratitude Journal

Today, I'm grateful for —
  1. A warm, safe home during these snowy winter days.  Today's drizzling rain is supposed to turn to snow later, but I saw snowflakes floating around my kitchen window when I looked earlier.
  2. Dora, who was worried that her neighbor in rehab may not know about signing up for the vaccine, asked me to call her neighbor to make sure.  I did.
  3. Friends (like Dora) that I've made since moving to St. Louis and the Crown Center 6+ years ago.  The photo shows Wednesday's snow as seen from my window.

I have done a 3 Good Things list each week since the pandemic began. It helps my mood to make lists. It also helps my mood to read the lists of others.

Have you seen or heard anything about the newest book by Michael Sandel? It's called The Tyranny of Merit: What's Become of the Common Good? I hope to get a chance to read it soon.

I'm quite sure I would like Book Woman of Troublesome Creek. I will very much enjoy hearing what you have to say about it.

No, Deb, I had not heard of Sandel's The Tyranny of Merit, but I did read his earlier book Justice: What's the Right Thing to Do? in 2009, when it was published. I just put the new one on hold at my library. Thanks.
