The pounding of snow we've received here in Boston for the past two weeks has completely thrown me off.  Between cancellations, traffic, and commuter train woes I hardly know what day it is.   But it's winter in New England so the show must go on.

When all else fails, a simple gratitude list:

1. All members of my family making it to/from their required destinations safely, even if slowly.

2. The delicious avocado toast I had for breakfast this morning.

3. Heat and adequate winter clothes - as the temps have been consistently in the single digits, I am keenly aware of the simple privilege I have to keep myself warm.
