Falling leaves

Autumn. Fall.
Whatever you call it, the season with it's warm colors and temperatures that migrate from cool to cold, and warm to downright hot -- at least in Oklahoma -- always makes me a little sad.

The epilogue to a chapter. Maybe I'm sad because this year, I've seen the last of my children get married...my precious grandchildren move far away...another year slipping quietly into history.

I'm sad also because I know this might be our last holiday with my dad. I'm sad because my sister's hubby's brother is now in hospice -- his last stop before moving on to the next world. He wants to be cremated. I don't know how I would act if I knew this was my last chance to see the leaves turn golden and orange.

For all of this I'm sad, but I know like autumn my sadness will pass and I'll laugh and dance and cry a little longer.

I'll be glad for Spring.

My Mother used to say to everything there is a season.There are so many things in life that we don't want to see "pass on" and the same with some seasons, we enjoy them more and hate to see them go... but we know there are reasons.
Kaap smiling honey!!
