Every day you wake up in your own bed is evidence you did many things right days prior. You provided shelter for yourself, stayed safe, avoided death, kept yourself fed & hydrated.

If you wake up every day with a lover by your side in your bed then you did many more things right. You offered love, care, aid, and shelter to another. Perhaps even bathed yourself .

If too you wake up with children calling you to make them food, then the number of things you did rightfully days past grows greater still.

So know, then, that every day you rise, you have done well but know too that the easier it becomes to do right by yourself and to others, the more it is you that must thank those that came before you. Let it be a reminder then that you must do your part for the next generation like your forefathers did for you.
