Does that make fall the season of friendship?

This morning I woke up to a cool crispness I have been waiting for! Yeah fall is here! I live close enough to the mountains that I can see all the colors. I love the colors of fall. They are calming and warm looking. And orange... the color of friendship. Does that make fall the season of friendship? I guess it is the time I start thinking about my friends and family and something meaningful to do for them for the Christmas Holiday.

Today I am feeling thankful. Thankful for the cooler weather. Thankful for the colors of fall. Thankful for my family and friends that mean so much to me. I am thankful for the season of harvest that is slowly coming to a close. Thankful that the last thing I need to can is grape jelly for this season. I am thankful for the blessing that  I have to work on things that I love IE; helping at the elementary school, quilting, curtains, gardening, and attending the Temple. Does life get any better than that? Spending my days doing what I love!

I am sending my best wishes and prosperity into the universe. I hope that others will be able to find a way to be happy and find joy in the everyday things that can feel so mundane. Yes even in laundry. For me that would be finding the joy in the colors and texture of the fabrics. The smell of fresh cloths. The warmth as they come out of the dryer. That warm feeling makes me want to grab a cup of hot chocolate and snuggle in a fuzzy blanket and spend the day with a good book :)

Here's to You and Yours!
