God, even while my heart is crying,
You fill me with your grace and blessings.
Mine is a life of “simple abundance”¹,
It is a life full with the greatest riches.
While never having a traditional family,
My family blossoms.
Every chapter in my book of life
Mixes magnificence with mystery and sometimes misery.
Through the tears of pain I see you fill my heart
And I know that the seeds of blessings-to-come you have sown.
Thank you, God.
