Today was a little gloomy in my neck of the woods. Kind of damp and cloudy, it was one of the those days where you want to just lay around and read a book.
Except it was Thursday, which meant work for most of us. Sorry, folks 🙁
No matter what, the leaves are slowly coming down and many of the trees in my area are now bare. Driving around today, I saw noticed that many trees were still in their glory. The red sugar maples were like fiery red torches. They were glorious.
Not too long from now, winter will start setting in. I was talking to one of my brothers last night, and I was telling him that even though I anticipate the cold weather, I’m never completely ready when it comes. I’m a spring/summer kind of guy, and I’ll admit that I get the winter blues.
That being said, I love the rhythm of the seasons. Don’t they make life a bit more interesting. How would we ever know just how beautiful the trees really are if they never dropped their leaves? Wouldn’t life be boring if everything remained green all year long?
I don’t know about you, but nothing makes me more excited for spring than a late winter snowstorm.
We generally take most things for granted. The change of seasons are a gentle reminder that life moves quickly. Savor every day we have! Make the most of it! Even if today wasn’t one of the most exciting days of our lives, tomorrow just might be.
I want to start getting up (even though it’s dark now) believing that I’m going to accomplish all that I set out to do. I’ll work on my plans, my attitude, and my relationships. Just doing those three things will make me happy for the day ahead, no matter what the season may hold.
Have a great one!
