Saturday in September

Saturday was brimming

With all sorts of activity

For this wonderful family of mine.

Two hard-won softball games

Brought tears and glory

And teachable moments

About teamwork and integrity.

I participated in a virtual event

To promote the importance of

Peace, sustainability, and social justice.

Then, to cap the day,

We all headed

Over to Micha’s Way

To raise funds for

This cause that supports

People getting back on

Their feet to live their lives.

I am comforted that our children

Witnessed the power of

Community and compassion

In all its many forms

On this Saturday in September.
