Summers End and New Seasons

 This year summer was hard for me, the loss of my sister created a huge void and left an aching heart, yet I feel like I'm not ready to say goodbye to summer, there are so many things I love about it, I love sitting on my patio in the morning with a cup of coffee and taking in the sights, sounds, smells. The quietness, the simplicity, the beauty, thoughts of simpler days, summers playing jump rope and hide and seek, bike rides and fireflies, many years gone, yet so vivid. Holding on, letting go, all the while Fall is quietly stepping in, Oh how I love fall, yet this year it feels like I'm being forced to move on not yet ready to let go of the summer but needing the refreshing colors and sights of fall, a season I love most,  the soothing healing my heart so longs for, so I too step softly into a new season not only of fall but of life...
   Blessing to all of you.  Wendy


  1. A lot of my blog friends are having a hard time giving up summer. We are entering that age when we lose friends and family and its hard to deal with our feelings and realize our own mortality. goes on..the wounds heal leaving only the fond memories. Sometimes the circle rotates slowly.

  2. Summer seemed to go on forever and then wow it gets dark so much earlier and there is a chill in the air in the mornings. I am not ready!
