My amaryllis thinks it's Christmas. That's not what I've been thinking lately. It's been a rough few months with the coronavirus pandemic and its accompanying self-isolation, and now the horrifying killing of George Floyd and justified Black Lives Matter protests turned unjustifiably violent.
My sister is a firm believer in the power of gratitude, so here I go. I am grateful for the calming beauty of nature blooming all around this time of year. Even inside my house!
