Define gratitude. Try. It’s not easy…at least not for me to describe what it means, or try to use other words that seemingly cheapen a feeling and/or action. In this moment I am grateful for the realization of a vision — my home. This place where my soul is being nurtured; where respect is evident and people work hard to maintain respect. I solemnly pray for continuous peace in this house and when there is conflict –for there will be conflict–that those moments are brief and lessons are learned quickly. This space will be a beacon for those within and ones who enter its doors. Let love reign supreme, humility be our guide and tolerance present in every thought.
