Can I make gratitude into a sacrifice? Can I offer up thanks even in the face of frustration and lack?

Let it be so. Let me dig for gratitude, even as I am assailed, even as my rivals best me, even as I am pushed to the sides and forgotten.

To give thanks under all conditions, this is to be my devotion, Lord.

Let gratitude blossom from me like a lotus from mud.

(Letter #1,663)
