Just thought I’d pass this along:
Rummaging through my notes on Moses Sands I came across this comment in one of his talks on gratitude and the shoulders we stand on:
“There’s an old Franciscan prayer that says ‘…of all God’s blessings, I am most grateful for having been born poor.’
“Stop to think of all wondrous things you can know if you were doing without before doing with.
“The secret to America is that she was born poor.”
