Thank you God
for the blessing of
loss, for
learning to
live love.


Each day for 26 days – counting from December 8, 2014 – I am writing one stanza of what will be, when finished, a 26-stanza acrostic prayer poem about blessings. For more information, including why I chose the English alphabet instead of the Hebrew one, check out my initial post.
