In my years of working with people in the area of conflict resolution, depression, anxiety, and trauma, one thing I've learned is that often the answer to our modern worries and troubles is just gratitude - for what's already been given.  Gratitude is not an abstract concept: it is an energetic state, a practice, and a way of being in the world.  A good friend once told me, "Often, the most potent prayer is, 'Thank You'". 

~ T. Moss

I especially dedicate this song to The Stovall Sisters: my mother, Rejoyce, and aunties, Nettie and Lillian, for who I am eternally Grateful.
