The real gift of gratitude is that the more grateful you are, the more present you become. - Robert Holden
As those leaves change, then fall, and then I get my warm winter coat out to wear every morning, this season brings so many thoughts. The nights are darker, sooner; the lights shining from houses and businesses seem friendly in the dark and cold; and I’m constantly looking for my gloves. Pumpkins are, of course, everywhere, reminding me of pumpkin patches and hayrides when I was a child. And “helping” to rake leaves, then jumping in the pile with all its crunchy fun!
This time of year there’s also so much preparation for the big event: a meal that lasts practically all day. And the feelings that come with it: remembering all the things in our lives we’re grateful for. It can be hard, sometimes, amidst the pain and suffering we see around the world, but I think that reminds us even more of the many blessings we have and to always be ready to lend a hand.
One of the blessings in my life that I tend to think about most often around family is our health. More time with close friends, immediate and extended family is a gift. And making sure we’re in the best shape we can be to have that quality time is key. If you haven’t had an annual appointment where we’ll check for signs of breast and cervical cancers, diagnose any issues you’ve been having, and make sure you are well and thriving, please make an appointment today! And then we can all enjoy that pie, knowing everything has checked out.
