“I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.” ― L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables.
We finally have cold weather in South Texas. It feels amazing. Everything feels fresh, crisp, cold, and snugly. We are on the cusp of the countdown to Thanksgiving and then Christmas comes too quickly. But, for now, today, I will enjoy October and all the beauty it has to offer.
It is truly a challenge for all of us to live one day at a time. We are women…moms and grandmothers…worrying is in our DNA. But, try to just focus on today and all it offers. If you do not have plans to enjoy, then make some. Breathe deep the fresh air…go for a walk…go shopping…enjoy an outing. Take time to look around you…in the faces of the people you meet and in the beauty of the changing season. Wear saturated jewel toned colors and an accessory or two. Choose to enjoy.
In a world where the news is crazy every day, and life is so different from how most of us were raised, one thing we can count on is that there are Octobers. It is a time for my part of the country when the oppression of heat and humidity is blown out by autumn breezes. Refreshment when we need it.
I encourage you to read the comments on THE POST ABOUT OSTEOPORSIS, the comments tell us all that we matter and need to take care of ourselves. Move around today and relish October…it’s about to be over.
