Thank you


In this time of short days, we give thanks,
for darkness is temporary and the light
of simple things shines through.
To be with loved ones, to be safe,
to be warm and out of the snow,
to have food, good books, kind
hands to welcome us home.

We give thanks for that peace
of mind that passes human
understanding, for our parents
and siblings and children,
for the call and for our
chance to answer it.
