Let us be grate­ful for the ca­pac­i­ty to see, feel, hear, and un­der­stand.
Let us be grate­ful for this in­cred­i­ble gift of life.
Let us be es­pe­cial­ly grate­ful for the ties of love which bind us to­geth­er,
giv­ing dig­ni­ty, mean­ing, worth and joy to all our days.
This is in­deed a day which the Lord has made.
Let us re­joice in it and be glad, and let us count our many bless­ings.
