Gratitude Prayer

This is today's Beliefnet prayer for today from Albert Einstein. I am in the middle of personal gratitude for the skill and compassion of a number of doctors, nurses, friends, family and spouse who have helped me get through knee replacement surgery this past week and this prayer is perfect for my situation (minus Einstein's sexist language).

In Gratitude for the Labors of Others

A hundred times a day I remind myself
that my inner and outer life depends
on the labors of other men,
living and dead,
and that I must exert myself in order
to give in the measure as I have received
and am still receiving.

- Albert Einstein

It is time to get back to giving as I have received!
