Because one day of Thanksgiving isn't enough (1 of 7)  
It's pretty hard to feel thankful this year. In the last two weeks, contessagrrl died suddenly and unexpectedly, and Trump was elected.

But in dark times, hope shines the light of a way forward, so I'm starting out this week's gratitudes for hope. It springs eternal, the green bud of the crocus pushing through the snow banks, not promising that winter is over, but promising that it will end.

I don't know where we're going from here, but I know I'm bringing hope with me, and that's what has me putting each foot in front of the other for now.

Your crocus image reminds me of this song, which I song a lot to help me through the winter:

I've been grateful for your many posts in other places, that have been helping *me* figure out what to do and how to help.

i hadn't heard about the death of contessagirl--i'm so sorry for the loss of such a dear and important person in your life.

hope is pretty much the only thing that has kept me moving forward some of these days--it has been such a hard hard year. hope and family and friends.

So sorry about the loss of your friend. There has been so much loss lately. But yes, all we can do is keep going...
