Be Grateful

The Captain came home after a series of overseas trips for good. Thanks be to God.

He was happy and calm. He was very affectionate with the children and his patience seemed to have been stretched by a mile. This disposition is even better than what I saw in him after his annual retreats.

He said the long travel time made him think. More.

He came back with forgiveness in his heart for past hurts.

I am happy all those separation sacrifices yielded fruits.

I asked him what is his secret to such a renewal.

Terse as he is, he only had two words.

“Be grateful.”
