The winds are blowing in great gusts. The leaves falling by the masses. We run fast, trying to catch them mid-air. We cannot grab a single one. They are too quick, the wind scattering them in all directions. No matter. You laugh and squeal until the wind takes a moment’s rest.
“Momma!!!” You point to the new bunch suddenly taking flight. We turn course and chase again. I am breathless with love for you. The thrill in your eyes, the joy in your voice, the leap in each step. You, my dear girl, have made this season better than anything I could have ever imagined.
I had mourned the end of summer. No more. Nothing compares to this moment, chasing leaves with you. Fall is here and I have embraced the chill.
What about you?? What is your favorite thing about this season? I would love to hear it!
