Good Morning

 

Good morning, or as they say in Papiamento, “Bon dia”.  I wake every morning and the first thought of the day is gratefulness.  My touchstone is a simple bracelet that says, “Liver Transplant, July 20, 2017, Call 312-695-8900”.  Those few words encapsulate what I am grateful for.  A donor who did not go gentle into that good night, the date I was transformed from  certain death to life, and a telephone number where those on the other end of the line are most likely creating another miracle at this moment.   Much to be grateful for.  And here I am relishing the gift of beauty, nature, peace, and friendship.   To me this is “icing on the cake” grateful.
