We all need reminded that we are blessed.  The fall splendor of color reminds us that we are blessed. (view from my garage)

The view from my son's bedroom window (I see this view every time I walk up the steps!):

Love this photo of pumpkins that I snapped at our local "Pumpkin Glow" which showcased more than 700 carved pumpkins in our city's beautiful botanical gardens:

My view out the front door:

There are days or times where life can be really crappy difficult, challenging and sometimes just downright poopy!

A few things I am blessed to notice at this time of year:

  • fresh honeycrisp apples
  • a big pot of homemade chili (made by hubby & enough leftover for dinner tonite)
  • a family bonfire on a beautiful night
  • yellow mums
  • red & orange leaves
  • a new video "Sculpt & Tone Ballet"
  • pumpkins & squash
  • not too scary ghosts (hanging from the tree)
  • the precious minutes when no one is arguing or teasing

(Dear Reader, please know that I realize that my eyes are closed in this pic and that this is not a fantastic pic of hubby. However, all 3 kids are smiling @ the same time!)

Be blessed. Be happy. And remember...
