1. Gratitude: 23:23

If I spend the rest of my life trying to express the immense gratitude I feel, I still don't think I'll have enough time or ability. It is a privilege to know such wonderful people.

Today I volunteered at the Good Shepherd Refuge. We made beds (yay hospital corners!), folded linen, and assembled shelves. It was work, but it was fun. I found it so uplifting being around the other volunteers and working with the shelter staff. I'm glad that Toronto has such an organized system for helping the homeless. I'm glad people are making such a difference...

As if that wasn't enough to fill me with happiness, I had dinner with Wayne and his daughter as well. I love being around them, and it is *such* a privilege to know them. Wayne's kindness towards me is something I will never be able to repay. His daughter is delightful. But what is truly special is watching them together... That's love. That's reality.

And of course, the outpouring of love and support from friends leaves me just amazed... amazed!

If I love, it is because I am surrounded by it and overflowing with it. How lucky can any one person be? What could I have done or what can I do to deserve this? Let me spend the rest of my life learning how to love as I've been loved and I've seen love, and that would be a life well-lived.
