Our friend Carmen's rowhouse was one of those burned down in a multihome fire a few weeks ago. Someone in their neighborhood had come up against the hard realities of paying for food and heat and medicine, and tried to tap into the electrical line coming into the houses illegally. They all lost everything.

My friend Karen lost her husband to cancer a few months back, just weeks after losing her father.

My own gratitude is tinged with the sorrow of these heart-rending tragedies.

I'm trying to make sure that the gratitude flows freely.
