The sky is wonderfully blue. The weather is neither hot nor cold with just the right amount of sunlight. The breeze is cool and refreshing. The leaves turn beautifully red and yellow.

These are the images that remind us that it is now fall.

When we’re too busy and have this and that to worry about, we often miss the things that are beautiful about the season.

This is a quote from Helen Keller:
“Now and then I have tested my seeing friends to discover what they see. Recently I was visited by a very good friend who had just returned from a long walk in the woods, and I asked her what she had observed. ‘Nothing in particular,’ she replied. I might have been incredulous had I not been accustomed to such responses, for long ago I became convinced that the seeing see little.

How was it possible, I asked myself, to walk for an hour through the woods and see nothing worthy of note? I who cannot see find hundreds of things to interest me through mere touch.”

I hope that this week, you could see and appreciate the beautiful and good things that you see throughout the week.
