To all parents, loved ones of those viciously, inhumanely taken from physical parts of our lives, I pray for ongoing strength in this New Year. I hope you hear, if you haven't yet, the chorus they sing together for us; beside us, above us as we take the steps we do each day. I hope you feel them dancing with us, making us stronger.

Life is but a momentary touch
found when taking a chance,
chanced steps through love’s
door that births lifelong dances.
We dance the back and forth
of gift and loss, of pain and joy
done to an opus of exuberant choruses.
And even if, within a moment’s notice the music stops,
dark fear is short lived that dances will end.
We soon dance stronger and longer
to ethereal music begun,
because of that time together.

With gratitude for all the kindness shared, with hope for continued strength..... Maggie Zingman Mother of Brittany Phillips 10-4-85 to 10-4-04
