What with the Recession and swine flu and a thousand other things, this has been quite the year for way too many of us. But, on this last day of 2009, I am reminded of Dag Hammarskjold [Former United Nations’ Secretary General] and his wonderful aphorism:
For all that has been, thanks. For all that will be, yes!
Thank you, Lord, for all the graces and benefits you have showered upon us this year. May we be open to all your gifts in 2010.
