My Favorite Season

I love the Fall.  In New York, I would still be in summer.  I would be soaking the last of my free time before getting ready to go back to school.  As a student, I loved going back to school.  As a teacher, I found it bearable.  It's always hard to go back to work. 

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.
