Martha Hoza learned this as a Girl Scout

Make new friends    
But keep the old.
One is silver, 
And the other gold.

For her, there has been goodness in this tragedy that started last March as it provided her the opportunity to reach out to others. At first, she sent emails or made calls and later wrote notes.  

A while back a friend called upon receiving a note from her. She said it was the 3rd piece of mail she had received in 3 months that wasn’t a bill or otherwise to be recycled.

In the past Martha has sent notes to my “old friends” and is thankful for “new friends”.

Gratitude and simple connections with others may be the one action to remind you of the goodness in our world…it comes from within us and is to be shared with others.
