Today I am grateful for the ability to communicate. From old fashioned hand written letters sent snail mail (which I dearly love to send and to receive) to skyping where we are able to see and speak to people we love who are far, far away in real time.
I am grateful for the handshake that says "I'm happy to see you" and that hug that I receive that communicates to me that I am loved and valued.
I am grateful for that homily that, if I didn't know better, I would swear was written just for me! (Oh, yes! God does speak to us...you just have to listen).
I'm grateful for the newspapers that let me know what is going on in my world.
