While we cry ourselves to sleep, gratitude waits patiently to console and reassure us; there is a landscape larger than the one we can see.
There's a lot to cry about in the world today - the destruction of the Earth, the current wars, the threat of nuclear war and economic devastation for many. The way to manage that pain and those fears is to accept what is and to be in the moment. Right this minute there is much to be grateful for. For this moment the world survives. Let that console us.
