Thanks Giving

Thankful that my religion encourages prayer even when — especially when — it feels utterly useless.

Thankful for all of those — from close family to distant members of our nation's armed forces — who keep my hardships well above the range in which true despair and true terror are justified.

This is advice to myself as much as to everybody else: take time today to acknowledge the obvious blessings in your life and to find the silver linings, no matter how thin they might be.
