Have I ever mentioned how much I L-O-V-E autumn?! It is absolutely my favorite time of year. The days start getting shorter, so obviously the nights start getting longer. As I mentioned in my blog "Super Moon, Super Evening" dated August 11, 2014, I'd rather moon and star bathe than sun bathe. So longer nights are fine with me. The weather starts cooling down a little and I love that. The colors are gorgeous!!! Halloween and Thanksgiving are in the fall. Then there are the apples, cider, pumpkins, squash, and local concord grapes. What's not to love? It's the perfect time of year.
This year has been exceptional. We've had an incredible autumn. Where I live, it's usually cold by the beginning of November and the trees are mostly bare. But this year, the first half of November was breathtaking. Until a week ago, I was able to go for walks in just a long sleeved shirt and no jacket. The trees showed off their beautiful reds, golds, oranges and yellows in the sunshine against bright blue skies. I enjoyed and savored every minute of it.
Now the snow has started. It's a little earlier than usual, but that's okay. If we can remember to live fully each and every day with gratitude, we'll have no regrets. We'll be ready to move on to the next day and look forward to whatever that day may bring... even if it's snow.
We are all so blessed. Each day is it's own special gift. Remember to enjoy every moment of every day. Live fully and be grateful.
