Rain, Cooler Weather Ushers In What Feels Like Fall Mornings
As the feel of the change of season grows stronger, so does realization of time slipping away
Published on: September 8, 2010
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
Because time runs out. And tomorrow may be too late.
