A hymn of Thanksgiving and Praise πŸ’›πŸŒ»πŸ’›

Sustained by my Mother’s prayers,
Her Mother’s prayers,
My Father’s Mother’s prayers; namesake.

The steady unwavering hand of my Father,
Strong, silent, ever present.

The light of my sisters,
The fierce competition and righteous anger,
The tears and the fights!
Mellowed into friendship and love over the years,
Companionship and sisterhood. Life.

The laughs of my friends,
The easy summer nights,
Forgiving and growing,
Grieving and healing.
Nurturing this adult.

Light from light.
Golden and radiant.
Grateful and blessed.
A birthday hymn.
