Bless Us All Today

  My house is silent with a Christmas tree so beautifully illuminated with lights that shine in perfect unison to outdoor sounds of a much needed gentle December rain. A handmade paper star from yesterday with grand kids rests on my lap. The stillness brings a peace to this senseless and tragic day that has no answer to words that ask questions of why. Tonight I am a child who makes a wish on paper stars, asking what if? What if everything in the world was for a reason? What if there is a greater plan and lost souls who died had made a previous agreement to help us open our hearts because I saw much of that being done today. What if we spoke gentler to our children tomorrow, to each other and to the ones who cause pain? And what if we stopped long enough in our over rushed lives of getting to somewhere and thanked the divine Source of all for this day? No, there are no words tonight except a knowing that today is all we're truly gifted.
