September

What a month….busy….challenging….full of laughter….maddening even…

The end of summer….school began and we still are reaching for a routine….struggling…..disliking our teacher…already a note sent home because she and another girl passed notes in class…ugggh….

We now have 2…yes I said 2….puppies….one is so animated you just smile every time you see her…the other a white cottonball of fluff….challenging having 2 puppies to teach and take care….but love fills the house every day along with laughter…

I celebrated a birthday little over a week ago….causing reflection….tears…worries….ok since I always worry then lets say more worries….wondering what now?? am I really happy??

Theres been some personal losses…..some personall stressors….we leave for vacation next Sunday to the Grand Canyon and I feel it…. a relief for just those few days to escape…to regroup….to rethink….

I drove my daughter today to the barn….what a beautiful day it was….the trees beginning to change….always makes me think of change….how my life has changed….how it continues to change….sometimes more vibrant….sometimes dull but constantly changing…old worries replaced with new ones…some worries just blowing away like a weak leaf caught by a wind….how I love this time of year….the changes…the beauty…

I thought of our puppies…only a few leaves have fallen in our yard but its enough….they go out and when the wind blows you watch them…jumping and chasing and rolling….the white cottonball we call Sophie had a leaf stuck to the end of her nose…she kept jumping and yipping at it like she could catch it….over and over she tried to catch it….by the time it blew off her nose…she had lost interest and moved on to another one….my thoughtful mind wonders how often we do that….want something so badly and try and try to get it and then just let it fall when its within our grasp….then I laugh at the thoughts and just enjoy watching her catch another leaf….

Then my princess…after almost two years…overcoming the slight fears….grasping the challenge…on a beautiful fall day….on a beautiful horse…she jumped over a jump…then another…then another….I paced like a nervous mom around the barn door….unable to sit….she went around the course….over 9 jumps…I could see the smile in her eyes even though her mouth was tight in concentration….it was thrilling for her…and when I heard her ask her trainer….Can I do it again?? ….I know she met the challenge….like all of us find our ways to meet challenges…..

Sometimes we are not handed things in this life….sometimes we must chase them….pursue them…grasp them….its the only way to achieve our dreams…..

Smiles….and this is only…

September….lol

Hugs and kisses

  1. Your thoughts tumble from your page Summer in a most delightful flutter like the leaves that fall from the trees..
    So many times we worry over the smallest of things, our children their growing, our family, our ageing, the world and our place upon it..
    I find nothing better than to take a deep breath as we breathe in the Autumn air in the last rays of a Summer Sun ..
    Knowing all things have their cycles as the Seasons, we grow, learning to become independent and confident beings, Like your daughter as she gained confidence as she learnt to jump.. Horse and rider trusting each other.. Your love of pride, her look of achievement..
    Our children stride out like the horse as they learn to canter through life.
    Life is ever changing as you so rightly say, and its good that it does, for to stay the same it would become stagnant and stale…
    We need challengers and yes we need to grasp life and mould it to us as we embrace it with full hearts…
    Go and enjoy your vacation Summer.. and let that Vast place of the Grand Canyon renew your Spirit..

    I so enjoyed this read this morning…
    Blessings to you and Yours
