Today was the most glorious fall day ever. Blue skies, light winds, warm air with an underlay of crispness to it. The leaves were rustling in the trees. I went to the farmers market and fell in love with all the pumpkins and gourds that were there. As I headed back to my car I thought about how I loved my life and wanted nothing to change. Driving home thinking about change I realized that nothing ever stays the same. And how boring life would be if it did. The only thing one can be sure of is that things will change, but it is how we react to change that makes it acceptable or disastrous. Things are going well for me right now but I know that this to will change, there will be times ahead that are difficult. I hope I am learning during this time of peace to know the lessons of gratitude and acceptance. So that when the difficult times come I will travel through them with grace and dignity.
