Thankful Thursday: The Fever of Life

Everyone in!

From pebble to peak, from profound to profane, it's time again for Thankful Thursday.

Because attention attracts gratitude and gratitude expands joy, it's time to slice through the ugly and get to the good.

This week I am thankful for:

A sappy, glossy, implausible but entertaining movie.

Chlorine, baby powder, fresh towels — the smell of clean.

My sister's laugh, recovered.

A friend sends a prayer that I take for poem. We share a history and love, and the thread connecting us seems prayer itself:

Support us all the day long, until the shadows lengthen, and the evening comes, and the busy world is hushed, and the fever of life is over, and our work is done. Then in your mercy, grant us a safe lodging and a holy rest, and peace at the last. Amen.

A good run.

What are you thankful for today?
