I’m continually amazed and touched by the love and support I receive from our blogging community. As I’ve mentioned before, this is a big factor in my continued blogging. I will likely continue blogging in some capacity; it’s hard to imagine walking away from all the wonderful people I’ve met here on WordPress. When I get bogged down in my personal challenges, our community steps up to offer the gifts of friendship, support, encouragement, and kindness. Of all the harvests from this fall, our community is what most warms my heart this year.
Here are a few photos from this fall. Even with the muted colors, there were still pockets of color and beauty to be found.
I need reminders to keep looking for beauty and goodness, especially in challenging times.
At first, I was disappointed in the autumn leaf display for its muted colors. But gradually, I came to accept and appreciate what I found. This is a good reminder for my life. Too often, I compare and judge something as bad just because it isn’t what I wanted or expected. If we try, there is usually good to find in any person, place, or experience.
I don’t have everything that I want, but I do have health, a job, and people who care about me. This season of giving thanks reminds me to practice gratitude and look for the good instead of getting stuck on what’s missing
May your autumn harvest be full of love and beauty.
