Look beyond the self

"Thankful"

Somedays we forget
To look around us
Somedays we can't see
The joy that surrounds us
So caught up inside ourselves
We take when we should give.

So for tonight we pray for
What we know can be.
And on this day we hope for
What we still can't see.
It's up to us to be the change
And even though we all can still do more
There's so much to be thankful for.

Look beyond ourselves
There's so much sorrow
It's way too late to say
I'll cry tomorrow
Each of us must find our truth
It's so long overdue

So for tonight we pray for
What we know can be
And every day we hope for
What we still can't see
It's up to us to be the change
And even though we all can still do more
There's so much to be thankful for.

Even with our differences
There is a place we're all connected
Each of us…

Gratitude for Thanksgiving and Torben

Photo: Torben and Berte Christensen.  Torben is my stem cell transplant donor from August 2007 and the one individual on earth who can claim to be related to me, not by birth, but via transplant.
I know that thousands of miles separate the Foxworths in Corona, CA,  from the Schmidts in Germany, but for the remainder of my life Thanksgiving will be one of those days to reflect on the event now more than five years distant that caused our relationship.  Thank you, Torben, for your gift of life to a total stranger.
