I'm trying to enjoy autumn. It's beautiful here in Central Pennsylvania right now (and I so rarely say that). But this year is just not the same. I keep thinking back to this time last year. Sometime during October I went to visit my parents, not knowing it would be the last time I would see my mother in her own home.
Right now, the weather is beautiful. The windows are open and I'm listening to the crickets chirping. I hear footsteps shuffling through the leaves. Halloween is not even on my mind yet, but I am already dreading winter.
It's a long winter in these parts. I'm sure there are some Canadians out there rolling their eyes, but really . . .
I'm going to need some help getting through this winter.
Somebody, please help me think of something positive about 5-6 long, cold months. Please!
