Griekspoor Rain, Cooler Weather Ushers In What Feels Like Fall Mornings Kansas Viewpoint As the feel of the change of season grows stronger, so does realization of time slipping away Published on: September 8, 2010 Tweet Post to Your Wall. Email Blog RSS Permalink Print A message hit me in the face as I stepped off my front porch this morning: Fall is coming. It's been so hot for so long that I'd almost forgotten what that first cool, breezy indication of the change of seasons feels like. I love autumn and I look forward to its cool mornings and warm afternoons. But I am also reminded that another year is slipping rapidly away. It always makes me want to take a little more time in the garden among the flowers, let the grandkids make another batch of cookies and ignore the vacuuming or the laundry and tell them another story. And I thought I'd pass a few ideas along. Today is a really good day to: -- Make someone smile -- Offer a helping hand -- Tell your family you love them -- Tell your friends they matter to you -- Do something that makes you happy -- Think about the good things in your world -- Make a list of the things you love about your job Why today? Because time runs out. And tomorrow may be too late.
