Life is not about big moments;
it is comprised of many small events.
Some leave you cold and confused,
others plant tiny seeds of love.
Big moments come and go,
we’re never entirely ready for them.
Small acts of kindness take root
and re-form who we are.
Get ready to be surprised by
joy that blossoms
when these tiny seeds
burst forth in laughter.
Get ready to weep
when the seed becomes compassion,
deeply felt and shared,
expressed in mercy and love.
Get ready to be there
in the moments you are needed.
In memory of our good friend Jack Van Horn, a poet at heart
