I am blown away by the transitions all around me this time of year:
- There is the seasonal transition taking place right now..from carefree summer to fall and back to school. While the weather goes back and forth from summer to fall, we know what is coming soon: gorgeous colorful leaves, pumpkins, sweatshirts and fall classes. We will then transition to blustery winds and snowflakes and chili's and stews.
- My two youngest (Abbey, 22 and Jack, 20) have returned to college. Both had a great summer and are in full swing already, working and starting classes this week. I know that their transitions are not final or complete. They will return home at some point and we will all get used to being together daily again.
- My husband will transition back to coaching basketball shortly which will mean long days for him and me. It will also mean much time away from each other and being alone most nights until mid-March.
- We all will transition from being outside in sun and nature (soaking up vitamin D) to more gray and dismal days, longing for that bike ride or picnic in the park.
