Rheta Grimsley Johnson on gratefulness during a time of uncertainty

Rheta Grimsley JohnsonPopular NewSouth author and nationally syndicated columnist Rheta Grimsley Johnson favors us with a striking and poignant read given the recent events in San Bernardino. In “Thankful for Small Moments of Peace,” the column illustrates Johnson’s determination to celebrate a restful and restorative Thanksgiving among friends. She lists many things for which she gives thanks, from Bradford pears through books read and music enjoyed.

Johnson points out “the world’s problems are best solved with old friends around a warm fire.” As the holiday season continues through Hanukkah, Christmas, and Kwanza, giving thanks for moments of peace is a good practice for all to continue.

Rheta Grimsley Johnson’s books Poor Man’s Provence, Enchanted Evening Barbie and the Second Coming, and Hank Hung the Moon . . . And Warmed Our Cold, Cold Hearts are available from NewSouth Books or your favorite book seller.
