As the sun sets:

let us collect our thoughts and give thanks this special day
and the ones that preceded it.

Let us pause to celebrate the gift of life.
Let us pause to celebrate the gift of family
Let us pause to celebrate the gift of each other.

As the sun sets:
let us give thanks for home.

Each one of us leaves our home every day:
We engage two (2) life journeys:
One personal of the heart and soul.
One public, of the body and mind.
It is our challenge to weave these two journeys into one path.

A path that can be shared.
But a path whose true purpose is in the service of others,
and in the service of children and generations yet to be born.

As the sunsets, let us give thanks!
