Some of us have a feeling of
entitlement about our lives.
We believe there are things we are owed
just for being here.
Some will grumble,
some cast blame on others
if they don't get what they want. 
The Angels whisper in an other direction...
 We come here empty handed in need of others care-

They ask that we look with gratitude
for all we are given.
It changes things,
gives us more compassion,
makes us giving,
more loving and more open.
In a season filled with sharing
perhaps it is time to say
for all we have.
