It’s a good place to start, she agrees.

Safety, for one child. And gratitude – including the things that haven’t happened.

Healing, happiness, and meaningful employment, for yet another.

And contentment, for the mother-in-law.

A good garden, too.

As for me? Where do I even begin? Really begin?
