Who knew how sweet life could be? In the dark, let us remember and bring forth that sweetness, sharing those memories, those hopes, those dreams, that wisdom, that blessing, passing them from heart to heart. We know how sweet life can be. And though we may be struggling, though we feel far away from such sweetness, though we may have nearly forgotten what a blessing is, let us take heart from this sharing of what matters, from this remembering together, holding together, giving to one another and receiving from one another. No matter what else, for this we can give thanks. For this kindness and sharing we can find tonight something good and holy and merciful, helping us on our way. Amen.
