The winds have been blowing this week-end. First the wind blew us home from our last summer camping trip early. Gusting, roaring winds were so disturbing it was impossible to hike, read, sit, journal or do anything without nearly losing ones mind. Penny and I tried to journal but it was hopeless. I like to think that the winds are blowing out the difficult season of summer and that is why they have to be so strong, it was a hard tough summer and it takes a strong powerful wind to remove it. In the winds wake will be a new fresh season- FALL. My favorite time of year. This fall I'll enjoy the cool, wear my sweaters gladly, sit near the wood stove and know that the summer of 2010 is behind me. I'll know that fall will be kind to me and mine and that I will love with added appreciation what I have today. I'll be thankful for the winds of change that are bringing a new season to my life.
