Thankfulness – Day #18
I grew up in Africa- the West Coast to be exact. In West Africa, we have two seasons: Hot & Rainy and Hot & Dry. The year is split about half and half- one half without rain, the other with. Not much excitement there…
Now I live in North Carolina. Here we have 4 seasons- 3 glorious seasons & Winter:).
Dreary Winter- cold…dead grass.
Beautiful Spring- a slight breeze blowing the warmth of a seemingly new sun around while the dogwoods are blooming pale pink blossoms.
Wonderful Summer- hot, hot, hot! perfect beach weather, with a light cooling rain every now and then to maintain sanity.
Fabulous Fall- beautifully colored trees lining streets with pumpkin-laden front porches. A slight crispness in the air- that ever so slightly bites at your nose & ears. Family get-togethers, Fall Festivals, Hayrides & S’mores. It’s all Fall, Y’all…too much?
Well, you get the picture! And I mean seriously, look at this street (and try to imagine this picture being shot by a $1000+ Nikon & not my cheap camera phone)…it’s MY street! And I am not a millionaire living in Hollywood, folks! This is rural NC in the fall.
Ain’t that a sight for summer-sore eyes? I am thankful to be living in a 4-Season kinda place…
