Yesterday was difficult, mentally. The day previous we traveled 3 hours away for the wake of a 7-month-old of a couple dear to us. She had spent half of her short life in ICU with heart surgeries. She had 5 cardiac arrests on Monday, a sixth on Tuesday, which she didn't survive. The parents have #faith, as we all do. The #pain is still present. It will pass, mostly. The tears will dry, and the little one has left us with feelings of #gratitude for having graced our lives, if but for a moment.

That's pain uninmaginable. My thoughts and prayers for everyone.
I'm grateful. Content. Glad to be where I am and have what I have. Temptations come, and I beat them back with #gratitude.
Thanksgiving means that attention is directed toward God, who is the benevolent Giver of all good things.
