Most of my life, I didn't get to fully enjoy this season. I grew up in southern Nevada where Fall meant a relief from the desert heat! Often the leaves went from green to dark brown and fell off, without much in between. And when I lived in Las Vegas, many trees didn't change at all! Palm trees don't lose their leaves each year.
This is my fourth Fall in Northern Utah, and I just can't get enough. I feel the same about snow, so you'll hear a lot about that as well! So, today, in honor of the daily prompt, I am grateful for the changing seasons and most particularly, autumn!
Today's Prompt: In my surroundings (physical), what am I most thankful for?
I also wanted to blog real quick about the events of yesterday. Overall, it was a good day, but I was a little tired, which always makes the day seem a little longer! Chipper's last performance was last night and I was able to go. I loved it! He did such a great job! Best of all, though, is all the friends he has made and how much fun he had. He loves the adults he worked with, especially his amazing theatre teacher. He was just beaming last night and a bit sad that it was all over. As a parent, I'm so grateful for teachers and adults who give so much of their time and energy to be a postive influence on these kids! It is a scary world, with all kinds of things that could draw him away. He could be experimenting with drugs or getting too serious with a girl. The fact that he spends all of his time and energy on something worthwhile and productive, is a great thing!
