Lyn's list 2015

I am especially thankful for:
Organizations who keep working to help others, refugees from wars, those who are hungry, grieving, seeking a more peaceful planet and need a hand.
People who make room on busy freeways for people to shift lanes.
That Al’s handbook on Biopolitics is almost ready to go to the publisher.
Visit from our friend, Hari, who came all the way from Greece to see us.
Tennis lessons in the sun in November.
Limes and figs from our trees.
Grown children who are working to help others.
Memoir writing classes and group members who share their stories.
Reading other peoples’ stories, especially those with backgrounds and histories different from my own.
Eating out occasionally.
Opportunities to travel and see other parts of the world, like the Panama Canal and Yosemite National Park.
Movies with closed captions.
Children who ask questions, even when we know we don’t have all the answers, and talking about possible explanations.
Cartoons and other small jokes and stories that bring laughter.
The “good enough mother” theory.
Walking with someone in silent companionship.
Clean water.
Courage in young people – well, in all people who are willing to do the right thing, even when it is hard.
