November 15: I am thankful for times when I feel like I am being understood accurately, and that the other person doesn't seem to think I'm stupid. I strive to understand others. If it's hard for me to understand what a person is saying, I hope that at least I show that I wish I could understand. Sometimes Emma Lou Thayne's words -- inseparable from the tune I know -- come into my mind, and they are comforting: "Who, who can understand? He, only One."
November 16: I am thankful for prayer and the intangible blessings I receive because I pray.
