For family and loved ones. Each person in our lives shapes us, and those we love make us who we are, since who we love explains who we are.
For the beauty of the Earth, with all its miracles. The myriad forms of life with whom we share this planet reveal the marvelous works of God.
For the delights of the mind-- for poetry, music, art, language.
For living in a free country getting freer every minute. For democracy-- and the responsibility that that implies. May we get the government that we deserve.
For peace. May it come.
God bless you!
