For the month of November, I am sharing one gratitude letter each week. As the preface to this series mentioned, writing has been my saving grace lately, is getting me through the tumult, the uncertainty, the frustration and fear of these times. I thought about cancelling the series to write directly in response to the events of a tight election unfolding in the United States and of how this makes me feel. But those words are too painful right now. I need words that are soothing. So, I’m publishing the series as planned because it brings comfort to my soul.
