I feel it creeping up in My excitement,the change of Season.Even as a child I loved each change but Fall was and has always been My favorite. Cooling air,falling leaves in the breeze.Us kids still playing outside till dinner.The excitement of school starting brought the fun of seeing friends again not living on My street and wondering who would be in My class. Buying new cloths with Mom and My older Sister at JC Penneys while trying to decide on the latest fashions. My parents being involved in the harvest festival. One Year they made a huge haunted house that everyone in school loved and I was so proud.I though loved the cake walk and the goldfish ball toss much more. Chilli cheese and crackers, warm casseroles and cream soups.I miss My Mom as I remember back to when She was a young Woman.I tried to duplicate each of these memories when I became a young Mother.I thought I was doing a good job when I was young but times have changed so much now I don't know if my girls really feel the same love through blessed memories. I know how busy they all are in making their own memories.It seems to Me they don't carry those memories I hold so precious while they were growing up.I suppose the older You get and as Your life quiets down Your memories do become more precious.Oh My dear memories of growing up in the 50s and 60s : ) Right now while welcoming Fall I could just go on and on about Our family in days of long ago. Eeks ! I sound like an old Women and that's just life and how it works. I know, but it's actually happening to Me now. I was and am still blessed : ) I would love to hear about Your sweet memories of Autumn when You were growing up.
I have more Fall teapots than I remembered,but even though I'm not hosting a dinner, I just felt like hauling it all out of storage.
Well that is a small tour of My set-up until after Thanksgiving. I am Thankful for so much.One little thing I've been working on for several Years is.... how to be at ease in My spirit with Holidays now that My daughters are older.Autumn blessings to all who visit and may Your spirit be at ease during Holidays.
