I love the fall. The leaves are gorgeous, the weather is nice for walking or working outside. This is my first September in 50 years that I haven’t been in school and I’m loving it.
I was able to drive my mom to a doctor’s appointment yesterday. I like having the opportunity to do that as well.
As we drove along, we got talking about some of my childhood memories and family members who had passed on. It was interesting to learn things about past generations and to have little questions I had about half-forgotten moments explained.
I came away from our conversation feeling blessed to have descended from strong, kind and resourceful women and caring, hard-working men. Genetically and environmentally, I was provided with all the guts and determination I needed to do whatever I chose to do. But I also received the ability to feel compassion and generosity.
The rest is up to me!
