How blessed are we for this opportunity to rest.To spend time with our families, nurturing, listening, praying, sharing a meal.Healing our rifts, being provided the opportunity to do so.Singing our song or creating new ones that evoke tenderness.How blessed are we for this opportunity to forgive.To begin anew within our lineage. To be accountable for our mistakes, to show compassion where we have failed, to relearn ways of communion that strengthen family bonds.To honor communication as these opportunities arise.How blessed are we for this opportunity to remain still. To respect one another. To grieve deeply for what is lost, what is feared and for the impending rebirth that awaits us.
