Thankful Thursday: 3 Gifts Autumn

3 Gifts Autumn

Well…I do live in San Diego, and some people would say that we don’t have a change in seasons, but we do.  It’s just not as drastic of a change as it is in, oh let’s say, Buffalo NY, for example!

1. So today, I am thankful that someone decided to plant these trees in my neighborhood, so that when autumn comes to San Diego, I get to experience the beautiful colors of fall.

2. And in regard to those falling leaves in autumn…well, I’m thankful that I don’t have to rake them up when they fall to the ground.

3. And finally, probably one of my most favorite things that I am so thankful for when autumn finally arrives is…pumpkins. Why can’t we have pumpkins all year round? Just wondering. 🙂

There are a lot of reasons to be thankful, and traditionally, this is the time of year when our focus is on being thankful.  I certainly hope that you will be able to take a moment and look around and find at least one thing that you are oh so very thankful for.
