Beautifully said, Unca Jones.

The Meditations of Marcus Aurelius (121-161 AD) begins with thanks to all
who helped him; your Giving Thanks post reminds me.

The Meditations is a great book on self-transformation, available in
translation from Penguin Classics, and frequently reprinted.  As the Roman
author said, "master yourself or be mastered by others".

Thanks for taking the risk to share such personal details about your life.
I share your prayer below:

>may faith and compassion heal the hearts of the
>heartless and deliver all from the cruelty of greed.

May all have all we truly need. -- Tom
