From my chair to yours... "Strength lies in differences, not in similarities.” -Stephen R. Covey…
We are quickly approaching that time of year that touches us all. At this time of year, there are so many types of festivities arising. All the rituals, jubilant or quiet celebrations based on old beliefs, or “just because….” to partake in. We are surrounded by so much and able to share with each other in so many ways.
Here is a little story I wrote. I hope you will enjoy reading it during this time of thanksgiving with small or large reasons to be grateful for.

And it came to pass that throughout the land
an idea was born.
It grew slowly among people and creatures alike.
There were many that were against the idea.
Who could not wrap their minds around it.
Their hearts had become tiny and dry.
Some, in the land, grew beyond this narrow way of life.
They joined the growing numbers of people that
were encouraged by the idea.
Some were silent and preferred to use other means to receive and share the idea.
There came about an unrest in the land.
This unrest grew in numbers.
In the end, or the beginning, the idea that had begun so long ago, prevailed.
The losses were significant in many ways.
The gains were more.
The idea was Peace.
