The autumn chill has found us.
Frost covers the ground every morning
glistening in the rays of the late rising sun.
Long johns and wool shirts are on us daily,
and the hats, mitts and scarves are waiting at the door.
Outdoor adventures take longer to get ready for,
but that first breath of cool, crisp air fills me with joy.
We hike, we play, we enjoy the time outside.
But soon little fingers are cold and
we return inside with rosy cheeks and cold noses.
Hot chocolate is made and enjoyed by the fire,
warming our toes, and our souls.
Stories are shared, laughter is a given.
In this moment I look around,
a smile grows across my face.
Happpiness. Joy. Contentment.
Family. Home. This life.
I am blessed.
