Fall is quietly falling to the ground! I gathered the last colors of summer and brought them to the deck to enjoy. Only one sunflower I planted just barely grew big enough to join the yellow colors of fall. I cut it to enjoy on my deck before the frost gets to it. We've had a couple of frosts so far in the Matanuska Valley.
Sadly, the darkness of winter is right around the corner for me, but right now the colors of fall have brightened my heart. This is a good reminder that troubles in this world will pass away just as the gloom of winter quietly gives way to the glad flowers of spring! Am I looking forward to winter? No. Am I looking forward to spring, YES! Only three more months until the daylight stops getting shorter and begins to grow brighter!
My Momma left today. She only lives half an hour away but I will miss the all day, all night company that she was. Hopefully her little feet will make their way back here before too long.
