Bread of Life Symbols

I know that I had grateful parents.

This does not mean they had no problems.

This means they learned to be thankful each day for something,

Anything that was a bright light in their lives.

Food on the table,

A roof over one’s head,

Clothes on one’s back,

Work for one’s hands,

A joyful heart, smiles,

A warm embrace,

Sweet brown eyes and wagging tail of brother dog.

I hope to continue where they left off:

Gratitude not as incidental agreements.

But gratitude as intentional acts hour by hour, heartbeat by heartbeat.
