Dear God –
Today, I’m thankful for rain. For cool summer showers and lawns that resemble seas of green.
For lunches shared with ducks and for countries where a beer for lunch isn’t terribly scandalous.
My heart is also thankful for technology and for the diversity of this life that it allows me to connect with. Even more than that, I am thankful for the complexity of people – else life would be rather boring.
I am thankful for moral autonomy and human agency. I am glad for shades of gray and for the purity of my young son – who, for now, lives only in the white.
I am thankful to be alive at this moment in time despite how similar life is to the rain I am enjoying – falling like a droplet from the heavens, only to disappear into this terrestrial plane.
