It's been very autumnish....rainy, windy, chilly. Driving along the winding roads near our home I can't stop staring at the the trees in the hills. They're totally breath-taking and pure eye candy. It's strange to think that just a month ago they were all green. I absolutely love this time of year. And am thankful for.....
-the coziness of snuggling with my family on the couch, eating sunflower seeds and watching movies like The Ulitmate Gift that makes us cry our hearts out and then whoop and cheer because of the happy ending.
-looking out the window and watching the coloured leaves drift down and pile everywhere. What an amazing sight and it makes me think how cyclical life is....constant endings and new beginnings. It's what I've been feeling lately....that I'm at the end of what's been and on the verge of something new and exciting. Not sure what that is....but I just feel it inside.
-spoke to a group of women this week. It was great. Everyone started crying and sharing their hearts and thanked me.....but the truth....I'm grateful for them...to witness their courage and be part of their journey of healing and recovery. And I love that in some crazy way....we're all connected to each other.
-Something else I'm really grateful for...when I go off on my own tangent....and follow along wrong trails.....and get frustrated that things aren't what I imagined....I can always come back to Him....and know....He's there waiting. He always has my back.
-I'm grateful that He's the door-opener for all the neat things in my world. My faith is an anchor that grounds me and a springboard into amazing adventures.
