Friends!! I wrote and sent this to several people a few years ago and believe it has meaning today as well. I hope you enjoy it:


Notice new things that come into range
As this season invites your focus to change

Life looks different when you see what you see
As you focus your view on the leaf, not the tree

Highlight the red that once was so green
Funny how, “focus” pops out the unseen

Refocusing blurs - all the clutter or strife
And helps us to know what’s important in life

So, let’s highlight the good things and blur out the bad
Let’s be grateful for “happy” and learn from the sad

Let’s gather with purpose our family and friends
and FOCUS on BLESSINGS this Holiday sends!

Happy Thanksgiving!

" Excuses get you nowhere.
They won’t undo a damage done.
When it comes to “what works best,”
For excuses it is NONE."
