And let us then give thanks to the plants who recognized that the sun is food, and in their breath, then give us ours.
And then let us give thanks to the marine life who perceived the strength of calcium and acquired it for shell and bone, for without them we could not move around as we do.
And let us give thanks to the mammals who adapted to land by keeping a warm ocean within their wombs, for without them we could have been born.
And then let us give thanks to our ancestors who got it into their heads that they are smart and make a difference, for without them we could not have evolved.
And let us give then give thanks to our bodies for all the powerful ways we can sense our world.
Let us share our breath and one another, the one gift we can give at any given moment.
And let us give thanks for the process of life and death and rebirth. Let us give thanks to all that is known and all that remains a mystery.
Look at one another adoringly. We are each a door through another can see through into the world.
We are imperfect mirrors but loving ones, just the same.
So give thanks and be here, now, present, in this space with this community.
