Gratitude for messy moments,
with their lively, unstudied drama.
Gratitude for the fragrant earth with
its briars, weeds and teeming life.
Gratitude for hope that carried
my ancestors to a better life.
Gratitude for my family who laugh,
love, hug, support and deflate each other.
If we can find value in each other,
we will all be much happier.

A poem found in Cindy Knoke’s words:
When we value others,
we are valuing that
which is beautiful
is better for it. ❤
Notes: This post was inspired (and requested) by Cindy Knoke from an exchange we had in the comments of her recent post. Thanks to Cindy for her keen eye, gorgeous photos and generous wisdom. May she always find the beautiful everywhere.
