October is always such a fun and busy month: pumpkin patches and hay rides, apple picking, cider and “fall food”, the boys’ over-the-top excitement about their costumes for Halloween (Will is Sir William the Brave and Sam is ‘Dark’ Vader), my birthday. As Anne Shirley said in the book Anne of Green Gables: “I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.”
I love October and inevitably it goes much too fast. Here I sit on the afternoon of the last day of October wondering, again, where it all went.
This issue of Letters From Home has a few of my favorite things: a recipe for the perfect autumn treat, photographs of a beautiful season, a book review, and a few thoughts on prayer. I hope you are well and enjoying the changing seasons, fall or spring, wherever you may be. (My husband grew up in South Africa and it always throws me off when I consider that his family grew up with October as part of spring, and Christmas—a beachy summer holiday!) Write a note here to tell me about your October!
One thought on “The End of October”
I love every letter you write and while I miss you your insight is precious to me. I particularly liked your Prayer Comments as I have had the same feelings and they helped me.
