Yesterday my kindergartner announced that it was the last day of Summer. She did a spinning movement with arms stretched high and announced "goodbye summer, see you next year".
This morning she announced that today it was Fall. She opened the window shade and started explaining how things were changing because it was now fall. We walk outside to get into the minivan for school and she says "dad, doesn't it just feel like fall? So different than yesterday."
She is heading into her 5th fall and vividly remembers last years pumpkin patch adventures. Such joy and excitement. At 5 she is able to grasp the "feeling" of changing seasons .
I, on the other hand, had not bothered to reflect on the seasonal changes. Not until my kindergartner reminded me.
So take some time today to reflect on the changing of seasons - not from a realty perspective but from life's perspective.
