November beckons us to be thankful. We readily reflect on what pleases us – tasty food, crisp fall weather, congenial company. These are the kinds of blessings we like to count. But what about the other stuff? How do we appreciate mixed blessings, complicated things, or those that trigger our irritation?

Winner of 2014 Nautilus Award
