As the Year Draws to a Close
By Don Iannone

Nearing the end...of the year.
Time to recount our blessings,
and look ahead in thanksgiving.
Time to see every end as a new beginning,
and every new beginning as an opportunity--
to renew and remember who we are.
Much to be thankful for in 2006;
not the least of which is abundant love
from family, friends and others
playing important roles in who we are.
Good health, happiness and above all...
union with Spirit, enlivening everything we are.
Many opportunities to grow...
through new learning and experience.
Welcomed prosperity through work
shaping our souls and moving us forward.
And creative moments in poetry, relationships,
and work solutions for those we exist to serve.
Looking ahead, and being open...to the moment,
and all it holds for us throughout 2007.

"time to see every end as a new beginning"

This is just what I need to reflect on at the moment.

Lovely Don ... reflections.

Not for too long, for then we focus on the moment as you said. For every moment is new and every moment is adventure.
May you have some great adventures in 2007.
hugs for you
