There are signs that autumn is on its way.
There are more and more leaves underfoot.
Acorns have began falling. Soon the squirrels and chipmunks will be busy gathering winter's fare.
These are all subtle and slow changes serving to remind us that seasons come and seasons go. We know this is to be expected.
It is the unexpected changes that leave us reeling. We know with certainty that life will never be quite the same.
Such was 9/11 fifteen years ago. Today I am remembering all those ordinary folks who didn't see the changes coming but in a terrible moment's time became extraordinary heroes! Please join me in "looking up" ! Have a blessed week.
