I am not looking forward to this probable hurricane we are facing. We will do what is necessary to prepare, but the impact the storm will have is unknown at this point. Storms come and go, as do beautiful autumn days. Seasons change, almost always bringing with them a mix of bane and blessing. Today there are clouds, probably the harbinger of rains to come, but there are also dancing leaves outside my window and a carpet of red and gold on the patio stones. I will enjoy today. I will scuff my way through the leaves and enjoy the sight of the colors under a gray sky. I will remember and give thanks for many wonderful days throughout each season, and that will give strength to face the inevitable storms. You have heard it before, I am sure.....today is a gift, and that is why it is called the present!
" Take the blue of the sky and the green of the forest, the gold and the brown of the freshly mown hay, and the pale shades of spring and the circus of autumn and weave you a lovely today." ~Gloria Gaither~
