A New Year

Fresh pages to fill.

When the proverbial cloud of darkness seems to linger, uninvited or otherwise…
you keep going.

You are grateful.
You pray.

You are grateful.
You go inward for peace.

You are grateful.
You forgive…yourself and others.

You are grateful.
You find the light through hope.

You embrace the reminders of the miracles of the everyday…
like a single rose blooming out of season that catches your eye, shares a smile with you and causes you to pause.

You let out an audible sigh and…
you are grateful.

Welcome 2019.

Author’s Note: I originally wrote this on November 1st. I find it even more fitting for me entering 2019; and instead of my rose bush blooming out of season, my Thanksgiving Cactus bloomed unexpectedly.
May 2019 bring you love, laughter, light, hope, joy, happiness and abundant blessings.
