Thankfulness Day 22- Fall

fall01Everyone must take time to sit and watch the leaves turn. Elizabeth Lawrence

Today I am thankful for the season of Fall. I love the fall season. Georgia is just so beautiful in the fall. I don’t remember enjoying fall so much when I lived in Florida. Of course, I was younger when I lived in Florida so maybe I was just not yet old enough to appreciate the change of the seasons.

While I enjoy summer and all of the boating, vacations, and other summer fun they are just too hot for me.  I really dislike winter. I do not like being cold and it seems that I can never get warm enough once winter comes. While I like spring my allergies, get the best of me and I just cannot enjoy all of the beauty of that season. I guess I love the fall because that is the time of year I am most comfortable.

There is just so much to love about fall.

  • The wonderful colors. I love that the trees in my yard look like they are on fire with bright reds and orange colors.
  • The air seems so crisp and fresh, the sky so blue.
  • I love a fire in the fireplace at night. The flames remind me of the colors of the leaves on the trees.
  • The sound of leaves crunching under my feet.
  • Crock pot meals of stew and chili.
  • Hot cups of tea at night—who am I kidding I drink hot tea year round.
  • Sweaters and boots. I love wearing them, so snug and comfortable.
  • All things pumpkin- painting, coffee, bread and so much more.
  • Family trips to the apple orchard.
  • Drives through the mountains.

There is just so much to love about the fall season. I am so thankful that each year summer is followed by fall.

What are you thankful for today?
