Life.

The moments string together

like garland strung on the tree

hanging a little lopsided as the holidays

start to complete. Strung in those moments

if we look closely, are all sorts of blessings:

cheers and glee, heartache and grief, sad melancholy,

moments of relief, strung tightly wound, fraying at places, 

so beautifully arranged in other spots our hearts ache with glee.

All strung together to create life. Beautiful blessing bestowed.

Hearts overflow, break, fill, and overflow.

As it goes on, forever this way.
