"And now, when Ammon saw that he was permitted to speak, he went forth and bowed himself before the king; and rising again he said: O king, I am very thankful before God this day that I am yet alive, and am permitted to speak; and I will endeavor to speak with boldness."
How often do we take the time to express gratitude just for the fact that we're still breathing? I know I take it for granted. I'm grateful that I haven't had any near-death experiences to make life itself front and center in my mind, but I guess it's important to not wait for drastic circumstances. I should be thankful every day for that new day. That would be a good resolution!
