Life is going on, the kids all have full school days and a few extra-curricular - all going well at this time. The weather is drizzly and cold, a taste of winter to come. I admit, I enjoyed yesterday and today with the cold. Would rather have snow than drizzle, but at least I have a peek into cold weather. Fall is my favorite time of year, but winter comes next. Fires in the fireplace, warm gloves, hot chocolate, old movies, good books, Christmas, wrapping presents, the smell of the pine tree in the living room - all of these things I think of when I think of winter. So, I'll take a couple of days like we've had as an appetizer. My husband's back is maybe doing just a tiny bit better. We'll see. I don't know what the future holds, but I have confidence it will be okay.
This is Day number 4 and I've been pondering what my "blessing" is today. I decided it is transportation. I was driving the kids to school today (they all get to be a car rider on Thursdays) and realized how fortunate I am to be able to do this. I'm reading this book right now where there's been a major event and all electrical conveniences are inoperable. I realized how blessed we are to have transportation at our disposal. Whether it be a car, or public transportation (I didn't own a car when I lived in Denver for a year) - it all makes life a lot easier. So for today, my blessing is: transportation.
Have a great day!
