Wonderful turnout for Community Luncheon & Happy Thanksgiving! ~ Margo’s Plymouth Report

Reprinted with permission by the Vermont Standard


Changeable weather has been our forecast of late and it has been true. Beautiful, bright sunny days with crystal clear skies some days, then rain, snow, sleet on others. Perhaps it makes us more appreciative of the good ones! Today (Saturday) was a perfect day for a brisk walk under clear skies.

I didn’t have time to count myself, but I was told there were 38 participants at the Community Luncheon. It was wild and wonderful – numerous helping hands, great amounts of scrumptious food, and lots of laughs. It was the first time for several folks to attend and some even contributed to the meal. We had a time of sharing things for which we are grateful and many blessings were noted. I am so thankful to be part of this amazing community where people can cheerfully come together and celebrate their zeal for living!

I have sometimes complained that this is the grey season, yet one day I wrote a rebuttal to myself, which I would like to share with you. Happy Thanksgiving!

Colors of Life

I am learning that things are not simply black or white

Nor is there merely blurring from day into night

Sparkles pierce the darkness in the sky so vast

Beckoning us to the future, letting go of the past

For who wants vision to be just shades of grey

Or not to see the vibrancy of the break of day

Perhaps we can choose the colors that we see

Instead note the forest, not merely see one tree

At the end of the night when dawn appears

The darkness then lifts to banish our fears

May we also remember that near the end of day

Colors will again appear in wondrous array

So why do we choose to let our vision be

Murky & limited when there is much to see

Hope comes in many shades as we go on our way

Changing and shifting like the light of day
