the fifth poem in our fall collection, Ourselves and the Leaves.
Things we can’t ignore. . .
The current state of us and the reality of our world and how it all coincides. You’ve got to acknowledge what you’re sad about, what you hoped would happen, but didn’t & what you wish could be, but isn’t.
Sadness is a good place to start. It’s the place we have to start if we’re going to genuinely celebrate at all. ❤
AND WE WILL.
But first, we boldly give sadness a place to sit next to us and we talk about its presence with each other and with God.
