Something my Papa said to me
“Clicketty Clack, clicketty clack
Do you remember it, do you remember it
Clicketty Clack, clicketty clack
The noise of the train on the railway track?”

Sometimes we remember the noise of the circumstance and not the actual journey …

Sometimes we remember the impact on our senses and not the beautiful scenery which passes us by …

Sometimes we remember the constant repetition of trials which do beset us at times; but fail to rest in the silent intermissions …

As we remember, may we never forget the blessings that come to hold us together during those days of heaviness, darkness, sickness, or loss.
