Yesterday, Lord, was our monthly meeting
with people of our floor, in these apartments,
to see if there are any complaints
or other subjects that need attention.
We are always glad to get together
if only to chat and tell stories.
One person takes care of monthly
flower arrangements for the hall table.
She also gives out candy treats on holidays.
Another sees that birthday cards
are put out for everyone to sign.
Someone collects paper bags
for the food pantry.
We are glad to be together, Lord.
A friend loves at all times, and kinsfolk are born to share adversity.
