All Saints

All Saints Day is November 1st but we will be celebrating it at Church today.

We read the names of those who have died in the past year. The bell tolls after each name.

I have been blessed with many saints in my life.

My mother who was a saint.She was the “Giving Tree”personified.

Wonderful aunts who all loved me as if I were there own.

Teachers who were patient and encouraging.

Sisters. All different and a different relationship with each but since I was younger they taught me. As adults we enjoy each other.

Sister-of-the-heart. Precious people I feel close to. Some I see  often . Some only occasionally. But I love them and they love me.

Neighbors. We have lived in the same house for 40 years and have had the same neighbors forever. They are like family. We do for each other. We pray for each other. We have watched our children grow.

Thank you for all the saints in my life!

    1. Thank you! Bible study mentioned The Ungiving Tree (a parody of the Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein) . Selfish and miserable. I told them I thought it strange I had just mentioned the Giving Tree in my list.
