Blessings of the Season

 Posted by Mary Beth Radeck on December 24, 2016 at 11:58 AM

A blessing is

  a circle of light drawn around a person

    to protect, heal and strengthen.

- John O'Donohue

It is this time every year we pause to think about those closest to us, and our impact each other.

To the group who minister to the oldest among us:

Listeners with solace during times of confusion, change

Coaxing to a new life of comfort

Of interdependence

They do this for the wise ones

Those who are full in life and spirit

Less physically capable but filled with grace


These past three months

Our clients have been mostly public servants

A retired policeman, a school principal

A soldier, an inspector and a fireman

It’s an honor to attend to those who served so selflessly

It's a gift to feel their grace

And in giving back

We are all blessed.

Please enjoy your holiday season and its everyday blessings!
