I walk in the sunlight and the warmth of the day.
The calendar says November and it's warm enough to walk in shorts and short sleeves.
The trees around me shimmer with brilliant color.
Orange, red, gold - a feast for the eyes.
The wind picks up.
The last of the leaves fly through the air in a whirlwind around me.
The unseasonably warm weather here has been a wonderful blessing. And I have been blessed by the vivid colors that surround my home and neighborhood for nearly a month now. I literally watched the last of the leaves blow off the trees as I took my walk. There goes the color, and a storm is supposed to arrive tomorrow. Blessings will come in new forms.
Blessings #3 and #4 in a month's worth of blessings.
