I'm working today.
I'm workin' on me.
If I'm honest I must admit it is not my nature
to welcome Fall. I've always considered it
a thief who steals away the Summer sun before
the onset of cold days and long nights. I have
seen it as a beginning to the end of yet another year.
behind my cold heart I know
the cool seasons are God's perfect plan for
the world to rest and refresh before it
begins anew. Who am I to begrudge
this cosmic shut-down?
I am looking, yes, even hunting, for the
joy of the Fall season. Here's my best
effort to "change" my attitude as the
world changes her colors.
Our family celebrates the birth of two
of our very favorites this month -
Our youngest son
and our middle Granddoll.
"Thank you God for these precious
ones who enrich our life
and bring us such happiness."
Fall has it's own yummy scent,
that of newly lit fireplaces
mixed with crisp evening air.
Pumpkins are one of my two
I have great memories of middle school Hayrides,
and that nervous, excited, awkward
is a Crafter. . .
and a fabulous Baker!
And on a purely selfish note,
"ORANGE" is one of my best
colors to wear.
(digging deep here)
And the obvious, which we cannot overlook,
is at it's very BEST!

Ode to Fall
Fall I do not like thee much,
but no, you actually do not suck.
I greet thee now with eyes brand new
knowing candy comes at the end of you.
