Saturday Poem and Gratitude List
Jalál (Glory), 7 Sulṭán (Sovereignty) 176 B.E. - Saturday, January 25, 2020

Walking Along the Edge1

I walk along the cliff of survival,
a hair's breath from tumbling into the abyss,
one misstep
and I fall into the darkness.

I cannot look into the chasm,
because I will lose my footing
and fall into the endless night
of financial ruin.

Gratitude List for 7 Sulṭán

Today I am thankful ...
         *BulletV* ...that my Bank of America checking account is not overdrawn today.
         *BulletV* ...for fresh brewed black coffee on this beautiful winter morning.
         *BulletV* ...that I have 358 points in my Survey Junkie account.
         *BulletV* ...for the breakfast pastries I have to go with my coffee.
         *BulletV* ...that I have $32.59 in my Inbox Dollars account.
         *BulletV* ...for the canned plums I had for breakfast.
         *BulletV* ...that I have 2,841,767 GPs in my Gift Points account.
         *BulletV* ...for the Arizona sweet ice tea I had for lunch.
