There are disputes between governments,
groups of people; conservative, and liberals,
There are skirmishes between neighbors over a foot of property
or animals in their yard.
There are arguments at work;
often over time off, or job assignments.
Moms and dads square off over many things in a day.
Parents and children are often at odds over seemingly small things
clothes or food or chores.
We frequently face strife.
We forget that we need harmony in our lives.
Agreement; but not always exactly the same.
Sometimes harmony is two things or people
working together despite their differences.
Today I am thankful for the people
who provide harmony.
They have different views and ways of handling things
and yet they can work together
in a marriage
in a family
in a church
even in our government
to reach a common goal.
I am blessed to have family who
understands harmony and sometimes,
we agree to disagree.
We find that being right is not as important
as loving and being loved.
