Dear God, let me be aware today of all I have to be grateful for. Let me see how I can have gratitude even for those things that vex me.

This discomfort I feel, O Lord, this sense of being ill at ease: let me see how it, too, works your will. My sorrows make me more compassionate; my trials make me more resilient; my fears pass and show me how to live without the need of courage. Yea, even my dull chores teach me orderliness.

Let me be grateful today.

(Letter #1395)
