We shouldn't take life for granted & should be grateful for our days. Each new one a delicately, colorfully wrapped package, waiting to be torn into.

Sweet miracle of living, of life,
May she always be a surprise
A scratchy tag in the t-shirt Provoking us to action and healing

May we never grow comfortable

In all she affords us

Let us hold her close and dear
Letting her wash over us Compelling us to be more Reminding us that this,

What we are doing,

Is but a breath.

And though it may be short,

It is magical

And human

And hard

And good.
