October Sigh

I have been meaning to share this for a couple weeks now. I received this ‘letter’ from a special friend with permission to share. She captured my own thoughts before I did. 😉 I thought it a beautiful depiction of Autumn, and the relish of something long anticipated. 🙂 Enjoy!

“Ever feel so blessed that you feel spoiled?    I have been waiting for October for months and today was a perfect weather day.   Yesterday I had worked in the yard and the biggest part was done –or at least as much as my legs and hips would allow for now.
After having lunch I retreated to my comfy swing in the back yard with the  last  slice  of  an homemade apple pie, a scoop of ice cream, a cup of coffee.   Along with that I had carried out a neck pillow for napping – just in case.    Yep, it was needed.    At first I put the pillow around my neck and just leaned back in the swing but soon I was stretched out and the gentle motion of the swing  lulled me to a quick nap.   Being a country girl at heart,  this afternoon would have been even more enjoyable if I had actually been in the country..  The surroundings make me feel that I am there but the sounds of the city are all around me..   But even that could not disturb this perfect October day.   Thank you God for your blessings to me.”

  1. Your afternoon sounded lovely! I’m loving October too…the orange leaves, that feeling of wrapping up in the chill. A lovely post 🙂
