12 Things I Am Grateful For This Year
Day 6: Help


Without you, I would not be giving thanks
beside this golden tree.
This beautiful path,
the strength I now claim,
would be sore dreams.

When I was weak,
you were generous.
What I could not do myself,
you did for me with compassion.

What you cleaned, prepared, wrapped, carried
was really a pearl—
a thousand pearls—
and I wear them always.
How can I not?
Help received is always a gift.
And I am forever changed
by its luxury.
