Autumn Thoughts

Our days have been gray and damp lately. The air smells like leaves and acorns. I smiled as I watched the boys play in the mist today. Little Brother picked dandelions and put them in a juice glass for me. I hope he always does that. I'm thinking about apples from the farmer's market and the smell of woodsmoke, dangly earrings with green beads and wedding plans. Did I tell you that a sister-friend is getting married in the spring? I smile every time I think about it. My little world seems to be paused on the brink of possibility and I'm discovering that it's lovely place to be. Uncertain, yes, but perfect for savoring what is now and for dreaming big dreams... with a bit of hope.
