Giving Thanks, Looking Forward
All of us at Facing Cancer Together would like to wish you a safe, healthy, and restful Thanksgiving. While many of us cannot be with our loved ones due to COVID-19, please know that there is light and hope on the horizon
We invite you to take a moment to reflect on a wonderful poem written by Barbara Crooker.
Praise the light of late November,
the thin sunlight that goes deep in the bones.
Praise the crows chattering in the oak trees;
though they are clothed in night, they do not
despair. Praise what little there’s left:
the small boats of milkweed pods, husks, hulls,
shells, the architecture of trees. Praise the meadow of dried weeds:
yarrow, goldenrod, chicory, the remains of summer. Praise the blue sky
that hasn’t cracked yet. Praise the sun slipping down behind the
beechnuts, praise the quilt of leaves that covers the grass: Scarlet Oak,
Sweet Gum, Sugar Maple. Though darkness gathers, praise our crazy
fallen world; it’s all we have, and it’s never enough.
