I feel intense gratitude at this moment—awake in silence with only the whispers of restful sleep coming from the ones I love more than life.

Surely no one deserves or should expect the kind of lavish good fortune I have had in my life, least of all me.

The people I love are all well and happy, and I love them so very much it brings me to tears.

I am indebted, eternally, and grateful, eternally to the One who has given such gifts.

He said, “To whom much is given, much is required.”

Acknowledged, affirmed.
