all the leaves have turned and fallen
winds have shifted
spring’s rebirth feels distant
love is woven in the heart
rooted in the past
growing from the present
as aromas waft through the home
keep it close
those near and far, here and gone
a reminder from Thanksgiving 2012 – It is easy to get trapped in our ordinary routines and the countless small frustrations we face each day. In doing this we often keep ourselves from appreciating all we have and overlook where we should really be spending our energy. I am a consistent offender of allowing myself to be bogged down by the “small stuff” and forgetting the big picture. I work on this everyday and with Thanksgiving arriving it serves as a reminder to take some extra time – enjoy what we have and be thankful.
