We’re in the season of list-making. Pretty soon we’ll be writing down the names of people on our Christmas card and gift lists, and then we’ll be scribbling New Year’s resolutions. This week we celebrated Thanksgiving, a holiday that inspires us to make litanies of blessings that give our lives purpose and meaning.

In 2018, for my Thanksgiving Tapestry column, I shared the story of Donna Bell, who was a recipient of kidney and heart transplants. Donna was grateful to those who contributed to her recovery. She struggled with a series of maladies that seemed overwhelming at times, but she refused to give up faith and hope.
