Rare Thanks

The Himalayan Lily blooms only once in seven years. Like the Lily, we may not be so overt or expressive with our thanks for our blessings, but grateful we are. Happy Seven Years, TTOT.

Flowers pure and white
Their petals facing heaven, forever endearing
Though bloom not often, their petals face
The One above who gives boundless blessings;

Their presence, though limited
Felt strong, fondly
Their blessings, though rare seem
Truly and surely given.
