Favorite Fall Memories
I love going to the orchard in the fall. I love all the activities that come with the season. But the one thing I do every year is take time to enjoy the beauty. It's amazing how fast it comes and goes. One week I can be driving to work wishing all the leaves would hurry up and change. The next week, I have to be aware to make sure I'm not daydreaming and driving on automatic pilot because the in the following week all of the leaves will be on the ground.
For as long as I can remember, my grandma did not like this season. To her it symbolized dying. It was alarming to me. It's something I heard years and years ago and to enjoy the season I had to turn all the beauty into a positive image. So, as I enjoy God's handiwork, I think about how this season reminds me that we need to take time to rest. Spring will come and summer will be ridiculously busy. Fall is a nice time to rest.
Grandma is 89 years old!

Jen, this has to be one of your most beautiful creations!
We are tropical so we don't really have a fall season. While I don't miss raking the leaves, I do miss the smells, the colors, the rest from the gardening (year round work here). Maybe your beautiful card will show show your gma how special fall is...If the leaves don't die, we can't have spring.
