Is it arrogant to say I am celebrated every day?
Without me, the sink would fill up with dishes.
This I know.
Without me, the laundry would overflow.
This I know.
Without me, people would have to make their own food,
wake themselves up,
remind themselves of a thousand things.
This I know.

And yet, without me,
those things would eventually work themselves out.
People will go on.
But there would be an empty place,
or a sad place,
or a missing place at the table.
And everyone I love would feel it.
This I know.

But God has made the earth to spin
and time to go forward
so we all face the empty in some manner
at some time.
And if things have been made to go as such,
then he will make them all good. Eventually.
This I know.
