Things We Don’t Say

November is the month in between.

First it was the month that came before; then, it was the month that came after.

Yet, November is the month of thanks.

How do I say thank you for the blessing of broken? I am learning.

PLAY FOR ME

November is traditionally a month of gratitude, and I have been blessed with the gift of a few off notes to help me practice hearing the melody as we kick off the season of thanks.

PART TIME BLESSINGS

There is blessing in waiting for an ultra sound to indicate another child is lost; there is blessing in the graveyard spattered with names I love; and there is blessing in the moments of failure. These are blessings I have known in seasons very different from today. They are the blessings that have convinced me life is full of beauty.
