Décor comes, décor goes…Autumn has officially arrived at my tiny kingdom. I can really feel the spirit of Thanksgiving just around the corner. Life is so very good and I am so very thankful for still hanging around in this precious universe I call my place.
It is wonderful how a change here and a change there, also in the color of the flowers and tiny details I place around, that can make such a difference in my mindset. I am so looking forward to my daughter coming to visit, and then I will be going back to North Carolina to visit my family for Thanksgiving. So very excited!
All this excitement takes place in my mind. I wish I could be in this happy mindset all the time…but then…there’s always a but…
I think I will be exhausted from so much happiness and excitement. Life is just like that…too much of anything, even if it is a really good thing, can make you start to take it for granted and then one day, it goes unacknowledged. So is life.
In the meantime, I am like Snoopy, the go happy doggie from the Peanuts. I just flip my flip-flops every morning and like Dorothy, there I go into the streets of Central Florida and see and watch what new stuff comes into my life. Sometimes have to be careful…some things come and want to grow roots in my heart, and then, that’s not such a good thing.
All and all, these things keep me busy, happy and challenged.
Think… what’s your favorite part of this season…
