Jennifer Hager’s Wall of Gratitude

Jennifer Hager and I went to college together.  We were good friends – and if you could say someone was “kind of intelligent,” Jennifer was certainly “intelligent and kind.”  Still is, in fact.  Although the years have guided us on different paths, we recently re-connected on Facebook.

And apparently, during COVID-19, she’s found a new way to express her intelligence and kindness.

This I must share with you, my wonderful blog readers.

Jennifer has an amazing talent – she can paint.  And she can paint on the rocks and stones that are available near her New Jersey neighborhood.  And during the COVID-19 pandemic, she painted images on those rocks – images of doctors and nurses and FedEx drivers and everyday essential heroes that helped make our troubled times just a smidge less troubled.

Here’s an article from that details her work.

In fact, if you would like to see her talents, here’s a YouTube clip that features her “Wall of Gratitude” that’s easily visible by her neighborhood residents.

I needed to see this video today.  It’s like eyebleach for the poisons we currently view.  Plus, I knew that at some point, that wall of gratitude would feature an image of Winnie the Pooh.  Trust me, Jennifer Hager loves Winnie the Pooh as much as I love Nikon.

We are all trying to carve our way through this COVID-19 morass.  Jennifer just found a way.

I hope you find yours.
