Now we gather in a communion of remembrance
Of those hardships overcome and all that was won
And those moments lost
Fading even now as the day
Seeks the darkness of the solstice
Tinged with the cold winds of winter skies.
Listen, a bird sings in the dark of December,
A magical thing, so sweet to remember.
Now nearer to spring than we were in September
Listen, a bird sings in the dark of December!
What a beautiful poem I was given to read by Rev. Anne. I looked back at this year and all that I have been through; the ups the downs, and yet I am here to listen to the birds sing even in December. I so look forward to the New Year, I know that everything is always working out for my highest good.
On the way home driving along just thinking about the last couple of hours I spent with some amazing people. It hit me that I have been fighting and surviving my entire life, going against the grain thinking I had a better way or making things more difficult than it needed to be. I was actually going the speed limit enjoying everything that was around me and everyone.
Today has already been amazing; what is in store for the rest of the day will be icing on the cake. I am truly blessed to have my life and all that I have been through. I am so grateful for every bit of it; without it I would not be the woman I am this very second.
Enjoy the rest of this holiday season. Don't be stressed with all the doings, enjoy all that you have and every breath that you are able to take in. Love every moment the way it happens no matter what, that is how it was supposed to be anyway. I love each and every one of you reading my blog; you have enriched my life in so many ways, you will never know.
Thank you Rev. Anne for your guidance; you are loved more than you know. Until we meet again my friends...
With all my love....Rita
