101 Days of Gratitude - Day #40

Happy Autumnal Equinox! Today is the first day of Autumn and I'm so, so grateful for living in an environment with four seasons. I really love the opportunity to experience all four seasons. Each season has it's blessing and curse. Winter brings gorgeous snowflakes and icicles along with terrible traffic during evening rush hour snow storms. Spring brings lovely flowers and rebirth accompanied by flooding and allergies. Summer has the delicious fresh produce and sunshine in addition to unbearable temperatures and road construction.

Autumn has delightful colors, pumpkin carving, trick or treat and fantastic harvest celebrations. It's the one season that really has no down side...unless you count the fact that it's followed by winter and the daily hours of daylight continue to decline. But I don't think you can blame Autumn for that!
