Somehow in thanksgiving I see clearly,
if but for a fleeting moment,
that much, much has come my way as a normal part of my dependency,
without my being aware of it…
Perhaps, it is always true that the test of my thanksgiving is the humility which it inspires.
Self-examination, thanksgiving, humility:
let us experience them in our quiet time in the presence of God.
(Howard Thurman, 1899 – 1981)
