We have been fortunate to have one of our most beautiful Octobers that I can remember in awhile. The weather has been warm and sunny and hardly any rain and cold to speak of until yesterday.
October is my favorite month of the year. I love watching the changing of the leaves and the crispness in the air. It’s the month that holds my birthday, my husband’s birthday, as well as a slew of other family members. I remember growing up that it was a month of celebrating.
Last week, as our son was preparing to run his last cross country meet of the season, I found myself surrounded by the beauty of nature. The golf course in NE Iowa where the meet was held was full of trees that were in the process of changing over to fall. I was standing by myself and just took that moment to look around and enjoy the beauty of it. It helped calm me as I was extremely nervous for our son. This was his chance to make it to the state cross country meet. Even though he didn’t make it (he finished 20th and they take the top 15), I have looked back on this photo often as a reminder of the beauty in that day.
Wherever you are in the world, I hope that you can take a moment to enjoy the beauty of your day.
