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.”
