Today I thankful for fall. I love the cool rain, the shorter days, and the bright trees. I love the leaves blowing across my lawn and sprinkling the streets with orange. I love the gray sky contrasted with the orange, yellow, and brown foliage change. I love sweaters and scarves. I love extra blankets and fires in the fire place. I love holidays that bring family together to make merry. Fall is one of my favorite times of the year. I love the promise of hibernation, rest from work. I love how the dying of the leaves and the sleeping of all the little creatures makes spring all the more wonderful. Fall is a season of rest. It is a time of inside looking out. I love the beauty of fall.
