day's treasures

The hands in this picture are about six years old. It is these little hands and all that they have made in the three years since that have been incessantly on my mind since Friday. So… no meal plans, no recipes, no cute anecdotes that turn all the heavy into digestible food-related moments.

All I have is this wonderful thought from a childhood idol that I came across earlier today:

“When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, “Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.” To this day, especially in times of “disaster,” I remember my mother’s words and I am always comforted by realizing that there are still so many helpers – so many caring people in this world.” – Fred Rogers
