This morning is so beautiful. The weather has cooled...though it will still climb to 85 degrees today...but now it is about 60 and I bundled up in my robe and slippers (don't laugh! To us desert dwellers, this is chilly.) and slipped out the back door to sink into my white adirondack chair and spend a little time reading my Father's Word.
The weeks have been so busy and I've been squeezing schoolwork into the cracks as we've been here and there. But it's all good. I do however miss the times to just read for fun and not have an agenda. This is constantly out-of-blalance for me. I am so driven to avoid "twaddle" that sometimes I think I am not letting my boys be children: enjoying fun and amusing and beautiful and cute children's stories. I need to balance this and manage my time better.
Thankful for Fall and the feeling it brings. The anticipation of the greatest of all American holidays: Thanksgiving, and the build up to Christmas. Made my first Christmas purchases last night and am excited to see the radiant faces of their recipients when the time comes.
Bless you as you embrace this season in your own way.
