Gratitude for what we still have

In memory of Herb Schoenfeld

This has been a rough year for many people, including our family. This week, my wife’s Uncle Herb died after a long illness. The same day, my brother had to get his big toe amputated because of an infection that didn’t heal. The world seems to lurch from one disaster to another, with no end in sight. Times like these make it hard to find anything to be grateful for.
