Blessings

As I sit on my porch today, the sun is setting and the air is crisp with "fall"ness-

The foliage is at its most colorful peak-

Birds chirp around me foraging the berry filled shrubs- time to eat

Life is good

Blessings all around me

Dinner is cooking in the kitchen
My daughter is watching her favorite show
The dogs are barking in glee- or whenever they feel like it!

It's the time of year when I'm really struck by the beauty of my surroundings-





As the days grow shorter, night comes quickly but the lights from within bring a warm, toasty feeling 

A phone call from a friend, a letter from a student, sisterly chats, and laughter 

-all reminders of the goodness of people surrounding me-



Life is always shorter than we'd like so take the time to enjoy the people around you,
 give thanks for all you have 

A smile, a pat on the back, a word of encouragement to those around you- 

It's all about the little things that mean the most



Take time to look around - breathe it all in - and enjoy!

Take care, gotta fly-

Claire
