Grateful that we are (still) alive together.
….”alive with our lively children
who–but for endless ifs–
might have missed out on being alive
together with marvels and follies
and longings and lies and wishes
and error and humor and mercy
and journeys and voices and faces
and colors and summers and mornings
and knowledge and tears and chance.“
Happy Thanksgiving to all of you out there! I’m blessed and thankful for my sister even though we are many miles apart she is always there for me! Love you sis!
Wished you were here, but it was a good day. Hope your Thanksgiving was great.
