Blooms and Blessings . . .
As we sat in our backyard last night, dining on grilled spare ribs and eggplant and fresh tomato and basil salad from our garden, hints of autumn were all around us. The hot and humid days of the last week are behind us (for now) and the windows were wide open yesterday. The days are noticeably shorter and the crickets are noticeably louder. I'm anticipating the way the sky seems to change overnight from puffy clouds to lower and more blustery clouds. Our bird houses are empty but our hydrangea trees are in full bloom and there are even hints of pink on them that come with cooler nights. I feel so blessed to live in such a beautiful and peaceful part of the world. I am not a church-going kind of person however I believe with all my heart that there is a Higher Power and I believe in the power of prayer. It is my hope that if you're reading this, you will take a moment out of your day and say a prayer for those parts of this world that are in the grips of the unspeakable things that are currently going on in this world. We truly need to count our blessings and not take them for granted. Namaste.
Many blessings ~ Wendy
