How Are You?

“Do your little bit of good wherever you are. It’s those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world.”

We hope this note finds you well, and that whatever challenges you’re facing soon pass.

We know there are a lot of them, and, while we’re busily doing the “chin-up” up thing and the “calmly carrying on thing,” interspersed with the “life is a joke so you’d best find something to laugh about — quick! — thing,” we’ve also been doing a lot of silent reflection, holding space, checking in, feeling powerless, frustrated and frightened…and sending long, deep virtual hugs.

We’ve spent a great deal of time lately counting our blessings, sharing what good we can find, and praying for so many who require so much more.

Among those blessings is knowledge that, in the face of extraordinary pain, there are so many stepping up to serve others, to be some kind of hero and to even dare to dream up how we might transform our current crisis into a brighter future for all. More than we could ever count, much less keep track of.

This is good news.

As always, this is but a sampling of people and organizations that we are blessed to have some personal familiarity with. We invite you to use it as a resource and an inspiration to seek out others.

Let us know what’s going on and of other items worth sharing. Together, we will all get through this. As we do, we will regularly update our Facebook Page

We are grateful for all the good you do.

It matters. Deeply.

Thank you.

Katie and Trudy
