Iâ€™ve been living in North Carolina for two months now and have been anxiously anticipating fall. For years, weâ€™ve traveled her on vacation just to see the fall colors and feel the cool, crisp beezes as we escaped the Florida heat for a week. September came and went, and, finally people are talking about fall. The weather is a bit cooler, Iâ€™ve had my first UGG spotting, and yet the leaves havenâ€™t changed a bit.
Or so I thought.
You see, I was so busy anticipating, and waiting, that I didnâ€™t look up. I neglected to see what was so clearly the first signs of fall â€“ the leaves were starting to change colors.
All too often, we get caught up in our day to day: school drop off, important business meetings, work travel, fall sports schedules, cleaning, making dinner, grocery shopping — you know the list. We get so caught up in our to do list that we donâ€™t see the things that are changing right in front of our eyes.
Itâ€™s a reminder to stop. To take a moment each day to look around. What you are looking for might be right before your eyes!
