I am thankful

I am thankful for the joy and pride in my husband’s face when he spends time with his remarkable son, Charlie, and for Penny, Charlie’s wife’s, happiness these days.  And I am thankful for Robert and Grace, two of my grandchildren.

I am thankful for seeing three generations together, and for a feisty lady who is not ready to let go yet.

I am thankful for the beauty of this old river town, with it’s painful past and uncertain future.

I am thankful for our friends Marsha and Cosby.  They welcome me home

I am thankful for what has been, what is, and what is still left to unfold

And more than anything, I am thankful for the Light, that sometimes shines harsh and steady, insisting I let go of what keeps me from love, and is also gentle, and kind and shows me how extraordinarily beautiful and good my life truly is.
