An Impossible Gift by Darlene Beck Jacobson
As I thought about this month's theme and those gifts that we take for granted or dismiss as impossible to achieve, I offer you all my own impossible gift.
MY GIFT TO YOU
Joy and laughter to keep and to share
Someone to wipe your tears when sadness and grief pay a visit
A hand to hold
A hug when you need it and when it needs to be given
Time to slow down and listen to the voices that cry out in need
Kindness given and received
Gratitude for home, food, love, family
Enough to share
Companionship so you ever feel alone
Peace of mind and heart that spreads, reaching out
to touch those who long for a peace of their own
Health in abundance
To be a light that shines in the darkness
As Tiny Tim said in A CHRISTMAS CAROL: "God bless us, everyone."
Darlene Beck Jacobson believes that the best gifts are the ones that can't be wrapped and feels grateful to have those gifts in abundance.
