I remember feeling that first breeze that would mark the beginning of Autumn. I would happily anticipate the trees turning colors and the cold as it made its way into the temperature, forcing me to put on a jacket in the morning. I looked forward to the last fight of summer as we still went to the pool. It was such a treat then. I loved walking with the wind in my face. Everything is gold, orange and red.
I had so much to look forward to then. I loved Halloween. I loved being someone else for a day. I loved Thanksgiving and celebrating with my family and friends the best food in the world, Puerto Rican food. I don't know what I have been doing but I feel myself today. I am hopeful and looking forward to hikes and trips. I look forward to holidays and hanging out with my friends and community. This coming week, my church is having a Kick-Off for Bible Study. I didn't realize it but I was missing Wednesday Night Bible Study. I was missing all of the activities that we have throughout the year. And I am excited as the year begins. Weekends are filled with cooler temps and cool friends. I am looking at the FB events that are coming up and I'm making plans to attend things and join the land of the living.
I am currently thankful for my life and for my friends. I am thankful that I have a community to lean on. God is good to me.
