Hello friends. This morning I was grocery shopping and I overheard a woman talking on her cell phone. She was complaining to the person on the other end about how much she hated Fall. She was moaning about the weather and having to deal with family for Thanksgiving. It was all I could do to keep from drop kicking her cell phone into the next aisle. She had the most depressing tone in her voice and she was whining...I hate whining!
How can you hate beauty like this.
Can she really gaze at a view like this and not smile.
And all those wonderful Autumn aromas...pumpkin pie and apple crisp. Hot cups of cider and hot apple cider donuts...yum!
Some of our most special holidays happen in the Fall. Family time at Thanksgiving and the fun of coming up with a cool Halloween costume every October. The bright smiles on the little trick or treaters as they hold out their plastic pumpkin buckets.
I like to think of spring and summer as the full day of fun in the sun that we all enjoyed. The Fall is more like the time of the day when your Mom or Dad come in to tell you a bed time story...all full of colorful characters, exciting story plots, rich smells and wonderful endings. All to prepare us for a good nights rest..which will be Winter.
So I will ignore and keep my distance from those who fail to see the beauty in every season...life is much too short.
Until next time...be kind and stay creative.
