“Praying Hands” by Albrecht Durer
Today I say “thank you” for many gifts:
The Gift of Love – given freely and without judgment
The Gift of Family – for the ties that bind generations
The Gift of Shelter – all that surrounds, protects and comforts
The Gift of Food – that which nourishes and sustains
The Gift of Friendship – a binding knot of understanding and camaraderie
The Gift of Nature – the glory that envelops me in the beauty of each season
The Gift of Time – to cherish all that is and has been
Today, I honor the blessings of all of these, and every kindness.
Thank you to filmmaker Louie Schwartzberg for this beautiful and inspirational video, with music by Gary Malkin, and narration from Brother David Steindl-Rast.
