NabloPoMo Gratitude #21
Tonight was the annual interfaith community Thanksgiving service. It's been an interesting evolution. The first year I lived here I remember sitting in the pew looking around and wondering how I would do in this new place. Would I find friends, make a home here? A few years later I sang with the community choir. Tonight, vested, I processed with the rest of the clergy, did one of the readings, looked around the crowd for "my" people, greeted the community folks afterward. It was another one of those little moments where I just had to do a wee reality check just to make sure I had not dreamed this whole thing. So tonight I am grateful again just to be in this place, living this life, for all the funny twists and turns that got me here, right where I am so clearly supposed to be.
