By Carolyn J. Scully/Word Weavers Orlando
A thank you named
recognizes the sacrifice of the gift.
Thankfulness is an act of grace received;
A simple candlelight illuminates the gift
in the midst of pain, or deluge of blessing,
but an extravagant sun spotlights the giver.
The face of one who births the gift
is worthy of our gaze,
worthy of gratitude.
We lift our countenance to our benefactor,
amazed that generosity has flowed freely
to the undeserving.
