I can feel the seasons this evening.
It’s as if Summer has finally let go of its hold and allowed Fall to rush in. The air outside is crisp, cold and earthy.
And I am happily ensconced in my warm little abode.
Soft candle light flickers from across the room and the smell of red apples infuses my surroundings.
It’s quiet except for the occasional whirring of the heater.
And, I am grateful.
It’s a word that has swirled through my head today.
A warm home.
A family that I love.
Friends that are true and dear.
A puppy that is my heart.
The smell of the Fall air.
The weight of a book in my hands.
The sight of dappled sunlight streaming through tree branches.
The feel of lotion on soft skin.
The knowledge that life is precious.
It all culminated into a sense of contentment.
Yes, there is still much that I want, desire and need.
But for now, in this moment, I am fulfilled …
