and crunched leaves in the hospital courtyard
I believe that it was his way of letting me know it was ok
keep enjoying the moments of life
Doctors were giving up
but 35 years later, and yet she lives
all because He lives
This time of year always reminds me
(that just like those leaves)
we are still here for
And as they start
turning beautiful colors
falling off of trees
and blowing in the wind
they float to a soft landing where they wait for
that final crunch
that final "surrender"
that final "thank you"
Life is like that...
and just as we are starting to get the hang of it
it is time for us to let go and sail away with the wind
That's what life and crunching leaves is all about...
understanding and acknowledging
the process of dying out to bad habits and old ideas
the letting go of one's self and becoming selfless...
in preparation for that final crunch
We are always reminded of that during this time of year
And as life keeps changing
I am reminded that I am still here for a reason, a season
and so as they surrender,
so do I
I am grateful for...
another opportunity to
share apple pie
and crunch leaves
I'm So Thankful
