Cajun truck driver Dave Carter brings us this thought at Ricochet, "When you arise in the morning, give thanks for the morning light.

He also offered these and more things to be thankful for: For the gift of liberty which, while currently in disrepute, holds the key to America's past and future glory.
For the insipidly terrible, metaphysically gawd-awful, cosmically stupid rap "music" that is currently destroying the restaurant's speaker system, for it will remain here while I walk to the truck, having gained a new appreciation and reverence for silence. Also, I pray the lead "singer" recovers from his (apparently) strenuous battle with Tourette Syndrome.
