When Seasons Change

Who doesn’t love October, it’s the official start to “Pumpkin Spice” season when we taste and see the beginning of fall – and now it’s over! Winter will soon be upon us. How can that be?

So, I’m trying to think what to put on social media for my upcoming anniversary. I’m not good with those posts. Everyone else writes such glowing tributes to their spouse and I love to read them, but I always feel like my words fall short.

Making Life Grand

This has been an exceptional month for me! I’ve had the privilege of spending all, or part, of nineteen days with one or more of my grandchildren. There’s only one word to describe how I feel: blessed. Yes. Blessed.
