I praise You and thank You for the challenges in my life. I thank You for the tall staircases I climb. I praise You for the people who are unpleasant and unfriendly. I praise You for the busy-ness and lack of sleep that mark my days lately.
I thank You because the Achilles is a little better and the knee is on and off again. I praise You for the rain and the cool weather. I praise You that no birds died in my library ventilation.
For these things and all the gifts in my present life, I thank You!
Your beloved daughter,
