My Favorite Season

Folks sometimes ask, 'What's your favorite season?" I've been pondering this and finally came to a conclusion. My absolute favorite season is the one that presently encompasses me. Like now, the cooling of the days, the brilliance of the colors, the bounty of the harvest. I love fall! But I also love Christmas, hot chocolate and the pureness of freshly fallen snow. Then there is the new hope of spring. And here in the temperate climate of the Pacific Northwest, summers are delightful. How could I pick only one from the beauty of each season?

We have had quite a few 'bonus days' this fall with those Indian summer days of sunshine and warm temperatures. Rain is here now and I love it, too.

My hope and prayer is that in life, just as in the year's seasons, I can find joy in each one.
