Blessings In A Tattered Cardboard Box

Blessings do not always come on silver trays,

wrapped in ribbons and festive bows.

Sometimes they come in dusty boxes

lugged by sweaty arms.

Occasionally,

a spider or two may tag along.

When you face life with an open heart,

you discover miracles happen

everyday.

You may even wonder what you’ve missed!
