This quote came to me this past week as I looked out my kitchen window watching turning leaves fall from the oak trees that surround our humble abode.
This season that I have been anticipating so much is already upon me and I fear that it will slip away just as quickly as the October winds for which it rides upon.
How can I just grasp it so that it last a bit longer?
I will savor every leaf.
I will breath in the fury of wind passing my way.
I will admire each blazing fall sunset
I will take many walks and smile as I hear the acorns and leaves crackle under my feet.
I will admire my children as they play in the leaves and not wonder how my life leapt from 3 to 33 but join in childish laughter with them before I blink and it's all just a memory.
