Live awash in gratitude

We go through life with basic expectations:
The car will start, the switch will turn on light,
Our friends will show up for a coffee date —
But there will always be surprises:
An unexpected failure or disease,
A startled bear, or a plane crashing into a tower...
Will those events teach us to live in fear,
Or to live awash in gratitude
for what good we do enjoy?
