in every circumstance

peace, patience, perspective in pain –
the understanding that where we are
is not where we’re going.
in every circumstance,
the recognition of
opportunities for growing.
energy and excellence,
being alright with not knowing.
a brilliant book, a cosy bed,
a cup of coffee full to overflowing.
a quiet word of encouragement,
hope and a face to call home;
cats and snacks, hardbacks, and
someone to write me a poem.

Yesterday, the challenge was to write a poem of gifts and joy. “What would you give yourself, if you could have anything? What would you give someone else?” These are the things I’d give to myself and those around me 🙂
