"Learning to give thanks is a spiritual practice that enables us to hold an empty glass and know full well just how empty it is, yet still marvel at how the solitary drop of water at the very bottom of the plays with the light.

"...Sometimes, at the end of a particularly discouraging day, I fall into bed in a funk. That is a key moment of spiritual discipline for me: I consciously call to mind all the things in the day for which I can be grateful. My mental list usually begins in a disgruntled way, starting with the obvious: I have a warm bed, a place to live, indoor plumbing. The more I go on, the more my recitation has a snowball effect. I recall how invigorating the rain felt on my face when I was walking home without an umbrella. ... Or how beautiful the bare trees looked, silhouetted against the glowing western sky, as I was driving to an evening meeting I didn't really want to attend.
