River of Life

I spent the evening last night with friends, and I will be with friends tonight welcoming the new year. I think about all this last year has held, and all that the new year will bring in all of our lives. We have experienced wonderful, joyful days- weddings, births, honors, victories. We have weathered loss, disappointment, disease. When we are together, we talk about it all. We laugh, we remember, we resolve, we do life together. Today I celebrate friends (including family). I am so grateful to have them. Here is a short poem to celebrate:

River of Life

Conversation flows freely among friends
Punctuated with bursts of laughter,
Paused by moments of reflection…
A river of life.

    Love your celebration poem. Its title leaped off the page at me because I attend a church called Rivers of Life. May you be a flowing river, bring life to all around you in 2017.
