Bits of Blue

“Gratitude turns what we have into enough” ~ Unknown

Isn’t it appropriate that the month in which we celebrate Thanksgiving is also when we embrace gratitude more than any other time of year?   

Sharing some thoughts on gratitude:

Bits of Blue
Once upon a childhood thought a mountain pierced the sky, and tiny pieces dropped across a fresh-cut lawn like robin eggs at Easter. Silently the wounded sky cried in midnight shadows as the mighty river ran the sparkling azure specs into a stormy sea.
And still the mountain rose with each discarded treasure, replaced with something new of less important measure. Smiles of sunshine faded into dark and hug-less hues, heavy were unhappy hearts as the sky rained bits of blue.
Until a childhood thought did once a service, do; embracing all they once had tossed, collecting bits of blue. And soon the mountain melted and flowed into a meadow, where grateful smiles returned to view the fields of glowing yellow. Evermore with thankfulness and hearts remaining true, shall there be within the darkest skies, little bits of blue.

  2. I try to be grateful all the time but this month it is easier to be grateful.

    "the wounded sky cried in midnight shadows..." gosh, I love that! That was a beautiful piece. Thanks for sharing it with us!
