Blessing for the Long Haul

Blessing for the Long Haul © Gail Doktor – July 2018

Sometimes the distance seems impossible
Between start and finish
Between departure and destination

Yet this blessing folds itself among your belongings
Tucked within easy reach
To be called upon as needed
When the road is long and miles accumulate
When the mind needs a story to stay attuned
When the heart needs a leap to keep going
When the body requires a drumbeat to set the pace

This blessing believes
You will arrive
And it has kept you company
All along the way
