While I have been snapping pictures of Autumn in my little dot on the map…
I have realized that I have a love/hate relationship with Fall.
While I love the changing colors of the leaves and the fresh crisp air.
I hate the fact that winter is getting nearer.
I love the waves of blackbird and the Canadian geese V-formation flying through on their way to some tropical paradise.
I hate the fact that the butterflies and baby critters are gone.
Then there’s Halloween. My favorite holiday.
It’s now over with another year to wait.
I love the freshly mowed hay and the full hay barns.
I hate seeing the cows and horses standing in the cold. I know God provides them with what they need to keep warm, but it still saddens me.
Walking in the woods, hearing the crunching of leaves. Watching a squirrel scamper about, stocking up his winter supply.
Soon the trees will be bare. Fall will be gone and winter will take its place.
It’s a love/hate relationship with Autumn that I must experience year after year.
I wouldn’t have it any other way.
