Remember this jar that I told you about
Well, the other day I took the lid off
And poured its contents out.
I won't share with you all of what it did hold
But I will say that remembered joys did unfold
For nestled within my treasure trove
Was the single biggest gift that on me
Had ever, by a human, been bestowed.
Now that is all I am going to say about that...
You might want to start your own jar for 2017
Because the presence of that little jar will
Remind you of all of the great blessings that
A particular year did bring!
So that you know
Your circle of friends will get smaller as you grow
Life tends to weed out the haters...
So that you know.
Doing What I Can, While I Can,
