In a complex and oft confusing world.
When life’s details
Get in the way of living,
And mounting worries
Crowd out simple beauty
Of snow and silence,
Fresh water and flowers.
When tragedy strikes without warning
And suffering arrives unannounced,
Then most of all
We must cling to what is truly beautiful—
Children, love laughter, dreams,
Wisdom, wonder, all that friendship means,
Rearranging priorities, and taking time
To discover what is alien,
What is really mine.
“Tis then confusion softens, storms cease,
‘Tis then descends the gift of private peace.
May such peace surround our lives
And fill our space,
May peace transform our hearts
And thus our race. J.Kavanaugh
Thank you for a wonderful year my dear friends…may we all find peace in the New Year.
