There is nothing quite as remarkable to me as the fall colors that explode in October and November. We now have two maple trees in our backyard and they are a sight to behold! They are sitting right outside our great room so I can partake of their beauty daily!
Yesterday I had to go to Stockton to get cortisone shots (one in each knee). While Stockton is far from my favorite place to be I have to admit that the trees in the Kaiser parking lot were breathtaking! I could have sat there in their presence for hours. However, I had places to go and things to do, so I couldn't.
Fall colors remind me of spending time with our kids, kids-in-law, and grandkids...I have to soak up those moments because they don't last long.
I am grateful for the beauty of the earth, it is truly glorious.
