Every year about this time I seem to post this graphic. I can't help myself! Today the rain I've been so longing for finally came down in a rejuvenating torrent. I found myself mentally energized, as I do whenever the long hot summer begins to give way to cool autumn.
What a trying time this year has been, most especially the past several months. I've lost my step more than once along the way, and these days it takes longer than ever to get back on track. But here we are with the cooler months before us, and I find my spirit perking up, tentative yet hopeful.
I don't want always to be looking behind me, lamenting the past. I don't want always to be gazing ahead wishing for what has yet to take place. Sometimes I long to simply be in the moment and let that be enough.
I need it to be enough.
