Autumn Blessing

Each fall I think of taking a trip to the White Mountains in New Hampshire to look at the foliage.  Then I stop for a moment and realize I have the beauty of the season already surrounding me.

The smell of the leaves, the bright oranges, reds and yellows.  I only need to step outside my door to enjoy what's already here.

Just a few days ago I took this picture of our tree. Today it sits bare.  It's amazing how quickly the changes take place.

Some green still shines through, though after a few frosts, it will be wilted and bare.

What feels like a nuisance when it's time to clean, is our next generation of soil.  

Not to mention, leaves are a whole lot of fun for my kids.  They revel in making giant jumping piles.

There is beauty in the change, the knowledge that in a blink white will blanket the land where now abides a vibrant canvas of color.  This is the blessing of Autumn.
