UNSEEN BLESSINGS

Grief inevitably permeates, yet
amidst sorrow, blessings
abound, often hidden, buried
in emotional rubble, waiting
for recognition, they remain
invisible. Like untouched children,
drowned by neglectful indifference,
alone they die, to yearn rebirth.

*****

These are sad times, chaotic times, ugly times. But in this dualistic world, for all its evil there must be at least an equal amount of good. I hope to dwell in it.

My blessings are too many to count. However, as I sit here, my husband happily searching for recipes on his laptop, my dogs chasing rabbits in their dreams, the house still like my mountains - I realize my blessings are all contained in this moment. I am grateful.

  4. Indeed today was a day of reflection and thankfulness for all that we have around us. These are difficult times, yet many are still truly blessed by the sacrifices of that day and many since then.

  5. I am grateful for today as well. Myrna, what does it take to live like this everyday? I don't do it as often as I should be.

    Joy always,
    Susan

  6. There is sadness in life to be sure. Still, the moments of content, of joy, and of happiness exist too. I'm glad when we recognize them. Lovely post, Myrna!

  7. Beautiful thoughts dear Myrna and reflecting my own sentiments.;) I feel happiness consist of those short moments of simple pleasures; it takes nothing more then a natural wonder, or an afternoon in silence just being next to the ones we love.;)
    Lovely post.;)

  8. "But in this dualistic world, for all its evil there must be at least an equal amount of good. I hope to dwell in it." Oh Myrna, me too. Blessings are abundant if only we open our hearts to receive them.

    Your writing is so beautiful, I'm so glad I dropped by this evening.
