Gratitude bestows reverence, allowing us to encounter everyday epiphanies, those transcendent moments of awe that change forever how we experience life and the world. --John Milton

Why Me?

The crocus didn't check if I was ready. The robin didn't ask permission to sing.

Yet the breeze has cologned with forsythia and gone dancing with the willow dressed in green.

Soil turned beckons while the pond echoes alive.

And I nestle the most marvelous new life of all here in my arms.

Out of the gray of winter, from the black of my womb, forth from the despair of a tomb. Life parts hard earth, opens wide my body, cracks rock.

How do I get to hold the miracle of life - be the miracle?

How have you been in awe of life new?
