Thank You God

Thank You for a quiet springtime evening walk
for the bird songs that soothed me along the way
for the bunny that watched me cautiously
for the squirrel whose fright jolted me out of the noise of my mind.
Thank You for the others
who sat with me in a circle
who understand more than anyone else in the world
my great need for them and that circle.
Thank You for the welcome home
the family of man and cat
sturdy and faithful and all kinds of gooey deep down inside.
Thank You for comforting rest
for the security of walls and roof
for the soft embrace of cotton surrounding me.
Thank You God
for song
for unity
for love
for refuge.
Thank You God
for life.
