Today is the first day of a brand new month, November.
October was great, filled with lots of activities and gala Halloween but it's now over.
I like to take down the decorations as quickly as possible.
The calendar has been flipped to the new month and the space allotted for each day is filled with promise and expectation.
November's always been a kind of sad month for me.
Soon, I will look out of the windows and see that the trees have lost all their leaves. The bare branches will look like bark-covered skeletons against a dark, gray sky.
There's a distinct chill in the air, too. The sweet warm days of summer are now just memories.
Thanksgiving Day comes toward the end of the month and that's something to look forward to.
Plus, November signals "get ready" for the holidays ahead and there's wayyyyyyyy to much to do. Have got to remember to take deep breaths again!
May this month hold good things for each of you.
Let's make the most of each day, each moment of November! It is just so good to be alive!
