  1. Lots of good news, JoAnna 🙂 Reading the article on “Food in the Frig” about refrigerators full of free food that have been popping up all over the place in New York City brought tears to my eyes. Yet another amazing initiative of a community taking care of each other ❤

  2. Thank you for all of your Positive news… It is amazing just how resourceful people become when needs be.. ❤

  3. Wow, this gave me an instant feel-good boost, I love it! Thank you! How amazing are those kids you mention? I love that 7 year old´s determination to help the homeless. Absolutely mindblowing 🙂 💖

  4. Hi JoAnna,
    It’s Lisa. Do you remember me? I wrote a lot about my recovery in criesofanunkemptgarden? I started a new blog, and am still learning to navigate around in here. I had a battle with breast cancer I am 3 months post double mastectomy. I am getting stronger, and recovering well. So I am mountain biking again, and now writing. I wanted a platform that I was not stuck in one certain niche. So this where I am beginning. Yes again, hope you are well. I look forward to reading your work. God bless ❤️

    • I do remember you, Lisa. Thank you so much for reaching out. Mountain biking three months after major surgery is amazing and wonderful. I’m looking forward to visiting your new blog! God bless and take care! ❤

  5. I particularly like the fridges.

  6. Thanks for reminding me that good things are still happening in the world JoAnna. I’ve been focusing more on the dark side! Hugs…
