Thank you for night and for dawn,
For new days built on yesterday's investment and yet free of failure.
Thank you for children soft in their sleep and strong in their waking,
For silly puppies and warm floors.
Thank you for work and for challenge,
For knowing and for learning to know more.
Thank you for a friend to meet in safe acceptance,
For the person whose rejection can breed my compassion.
Thank you for cough medecine and hot tea,
For dirty laundry and the chance to make something clean.
Thank you for this new day and the people we will do it with!
