If you've been reading my blog for the past few weeks, you've probably guessed that I'm very fond of summer. Each year, I hold on to it as long as I can. (However, in all honesty, I mostly like summer as long as the weather is nice. I guess you could call me Nature's fair weather friend!)
Any way, the last couple of years, I have changed my attitude. I try to appreciate all of the seasons as each has a beauty if its own. (I decided that life is too short to long for summer until it makes its next appearance.)
Now, each autumn, I take down all remnants of summer in our house and fill our home with the look of fall-brightly colored leaves, flowers, etc. I've currently got a pretty good collection of fall decorations, whereas, previously, for the most part, I ignored anything pertaining to the autumnal season. Used to, occasionally, I'd maybe bring home one rather small pumpkin I'd found at our local grocer's as my way in participating in a season that I didn't particularly like.
Now, by adding the colors of autumn (which reflects the colorful splender outside), our house has a more cheerful and homey look and feel.
Presently, here in East Tennessee, the leaves barely hint at the magnificent color which will be evident in just a few short weeks.
Autumn, you're growing on me. We just might even become friends!
Positive thought: Embrace change! Enjoy all the seasons of life.
Thanks for visiting! Until next time (Sunday, October 2), Becky
