Keep It Close

looking in your window

all the leaves have turned and fallen

winds have shifted

spring’s rebirth feels distant

love is woven in the heart

rooted in the past

growing from the present

as aromas waft through the home

keep it close

those near and far, here and gone

a reminder from Thanksgiving 2012 – It is easy to get trapped in our ordinary routines and the countless small frustrations we face each day. In doing this we often keep ourselves from appreciating all we have and overlook where we should really be spending our energy. I am a consistent offender of allowing myself to  be bogged down by the “small stuff” and forgetting the big picture. I work on this everyday and with Thanksgiving arriving it serves as a reminder to take some extra time – enjoy what we have and be thankful.
