Prophesy

Today, as my cats were pouncing on my head to get me out of bed, I snuggled in deeper under the blankets feeling the cold night air whistling through my windows. Fall has come to South Dakota and I'm not ready for it.

When I worked for the church, my life was lived and slowly died around the public school calendar. All my plans were based on those pieces of paper. Two years later, I've finally relaxed and let my BODY tell me when it's fall - not the principal. And I felt it this morning.

Remember last June when I was so frustrated that I wasn't doing "better?" Well, summer came and went in a flash, and it truly was my summer of freedom. The one I was complaining about before it even happened. Again, I'd like to point out what an utter dork I am sometimes. I beached, I camped, I played with kids, I reconnected with old friends, I made new friends, I enjoyed my family for the first time ever, I have a rocking tan, and I'm DATING! I mean seriously, that's a whole summer jam packed with new and fun experiences and I was thinking it was going to suck. Please remind me next time I am lamenting a future yet to happen, that I have no CLUE what I'm in store for.

Fall's coming. Wonder what will happen this year?

With the change in seasons, I sense a change in attitude, too. I'm sure there's many good things in store for you!

It's always a good thing when new seasons bring such great experiences. I can't believe it's already fall though!!

More smiles for you I hope. :)

i think sometimes life has better things in store for us than we could think up on our own. i'm so glad you had such a fantastic summer. it's a long process to go from rock bottom to living a life full of fun and sun and people you love - but it's so worth it too.
