I had the intention of writing this blog a few weeks after my birthday, but time slipped away and LIFE, just life. Lately, the phrase, “If it’s not one thing, it’s another” has been my anthem as of late. Seriously. Autumn/Fall is my absolute favorite time of year, as it is most people’s. Because it stands out above all the other seasons. It’s DIFFERENT. I love walking out and seeing glorious colors every day. Northern California has incredible trees, the weather has finally dropped in temperature from our triple digit summer. Coffee always tastes better this time of year, and the gloomy days beckon us to enjoy the great indoors.
However, this season there were a lot of hard realities to face. My first car finally broke down on me as I was driving to work. I knew that this day was coming, but I was praying “just a couple of more months.” However, it was time. My little golden nugget of a Nissan Sentra had a good, long life. We had so many good memories together.
Both of my grandparents went to the hospital this month. They’re doing okay now. It’s pretty crazy how much the circle of life is true. I’m grateful for everyday that I get to spend with them. So many people have been praying for my family and it means the world to me. As much as you can, let the people in your life know how much you love them. It’s so important. Tomorrow is never promised, to anyone, ever. Life is such a gift.
