"Eucharist [thanksgiving] is the state of the perfect man. Eucharist is the life of paradise. Eucharist is the only full and real response of man to God's creation, redemption, and gift of heaven."
"Gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder."

January 26th: "A Gift Before Dawn, At Noon, After Dark"
Author's Note: Today is the birthday of my Eldest Brother, the Old Man, the "Quiet Genius" Always the protector, he had my back from the get-go. I can still hear the bounce of the basketball on the driveway of the house where we grew up. I hope he knows how much he has meant to me and how much I love him. Happy Birthday, Bryan!
