Let us focus for a moment on the things of the day, 
and remember how fortunate we are to be able to make our own way.
The power of speech,
the gift of sight,
someone to talk to as the day turns to night.
There are so many who are without these very things,
so may we count our blessings
and realize the joy in which it brings.......
