Finding The Perfect Gift {Free Holiday Printable}

…. (excerpt)

But now had arrived

and unwrapped like a gift —


The embrace at the door,

the loud laughter in the twilight greying,

the clock ticking down after the still —

all unearned —

her here at all.


So after the turkey and Aunt Eileen’s pie, she’d written it down and taped it up,

to remember when everything would spin fast for the more —-

how they had had already received Godsends,

how a Tree had hung with Love and redeemed everything and now felt like glory in her lungs,

how they had so much to be thankful for.

” ‘Give thanks’

& give is a verb, something that we do:

That our thanks-giving might literally become thanks-LIVING.”
