I wanted to give you an original holiday gift.
So -- here's a poem for you, (I just finished it after midnight!)
To represent the feeling behind this message,I decided to include a special photo (pre-Covid) of a wonderful interfaith friendship group...Jewish, Christian and Muslim. The people includes members from my Jewish Congregation Hakafa -- which means encirclement.
On that trip, everyone traveled together to feed immigrants at the Texas border. Their actions gave hope to asylum seekers, who had given up everything to find safety in the United States.
You also make a difference to others. And I'm grateful for that.
So -- without further ado, here's my tribute to acknowledge you!
A Tribute To Your Spirit
by: Lynn B. Sanders
Wherever you go, and whatever you do,
I appreciate the spirit inside of you.
Your smile uplifts people, and eases their mind
No matter their mood, you are thoughtful and kind.
Each day, you're deciding – how to act – how to "be."
You honor relationships through your personality.
You're leading with love, and your heart holds the key,
Together, we're uniting humanity.
It’s never too late and you’re never too old
To be the light in the darkness… the hand to hold.
I celebrate your spirit...may your dreams come true,
Keep spreading your joy -- because our world needs YOU!
With virtual hugs,
