Dear God, my lack of gratitude is astounding. If I reflect on all that has come into my life directly as a gift from you, I cannot even complete the list. The gifts are too many. Yet I remain unreflective of all these gifts. I so rarely think seriously about them.

I behave as if the conditions around me are just that: conditions, arising from some unknown place. The truth is you have ordered and arranged every single thing in my life, from the largest to the smallest.

Dear Lord, let me have an awareness of the gifts all around me. Let me not be so ungrateful. Let me try to live a deserving life.

(Letter #887)
