It’s already nearing the end of September as I write this. As usual, I find myself wondering where the time has gone. Fall will officially arrive within days, the kids are getting settled into the new school year and America has survived another anniversary of the September 11th attacks. As I think about 9/11, I wonder if our nation will ever really heal from such an overwhelming tragedy. I continue to pray for all those who lost loved ones and I remain inspired by the amazing acts of heroism we saw from so many on that day.
There is a lot left to enjoy in the remaining days of September as we say goodbye to summer and welcome fall. I’m looking forward to simple things, like watching the leaves become a background of vivid color, replacing my ailing summer flowers with some fresh containers of mums and harvesting a perfect pumpkin that we’ve been nurturing in our garden for months. I hope you find plenty of things to bring you joy, too. Happy Autumn!
