Quotes for the Season
Here in the United States, the fall season officially starts in a few weeks. And yet the unofficial start of fall seems to be Labor Day weekend.
I love fall. The crisp air, the explosion of color, the harvest. My emotion in this time period is gratitude, likely because Thanksgiving anchors the season.
For some, it’s a season of harvest, a celebration that they have planted and can enjoy it. For some it’s a new beginning. F. Scott Fitzgerald said, “Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall.” And for others, it’s just a time to enjoy the transition between summer and winter.
Whatever you experience, I wish you success and peace.
