This weekend we celebrated Labor Day which to a lot of us means summer is over. School is back in session and life takes on a different pace. I look outside and see the leaves changing colors. It’s time for fall to make its appearance.
Since I didn’t grow up in a place with very obvious seasons, I really enjoy seeing the seasons change. I love watching the leaves turn to orange, yellow or red and fell the air get cooler. Then I love waiting for that first snowfall and chill. Then once it is time for spring it just feels good to not have to bundle up & to see flowers blooming again.
Then we have seasons of our lives. There are so many things I want to do with in my life. But right now I am in the season of making babies and I am just fine with that. One day this baby no longer be a baby and I will have a chance to do a lot of things I haven’t been able to do before. I am not going to feel guilty about it either. Babies grow so fast and since this is my last I think it will go by even quicker.
Then with being a military family we go through seasons of deployment, and seasons of having a husband at home. Just like the seasons of the year, we have a different pace of life depending on if he is home or not. So with this next deployment I am going to remind myself that it won’t last forever. Just like the summer months end and fall takes over, he will be home with us again.
