It’s 2:53 PM on the fourteenth of November. I’m sitting in my beige cube at work, tired, feeling weighty. I don’t feel thankful today. I began my day at work with a text to a friend….really a cry for help. She responded in her loving way and I knew there was someone here, near me. The fact of the matter is, is that these days come. The days we’d rather close our eyes to the world because it provides the security system that we need for that day.
I may not be feeling very thankful today, but I know gratitude like joy finds the moments of grace.
