Don't you just love October? This picture is so peaceful looking to me and I just love the changing of the seasons. I have lately been making more of an effort to be thankful for things and trying not to complain about challenges and problems. As the weather cools down and it becomes more fall-like I look forward to so many things I enjoy. I love a fire in the fireplace. Hot coffee or hot tea. A big fluffy quilt and a great book. Fall festivals. Boiled peanuts. One of my cats or dogs snuggling up next to me. We're into the fourth quarter of 2008 and I thank the Lord for His blessings.
