Thank you

My birthday was lovely

And your words were sweet

And I thought maybe I would reply to them all

But then it would take me till my next birthday

Which feels counterproductive for all

So I will just say

Thank you.

Thank you to those who shared pieces of your own pain –

I am so sorry, and I care.

And thank you to those who sent things,

Like bacon jam and tea and a handmade bookmark

And Scripture cards and flower seeds

And always words.

I really loved hearing from you.


– Shari
