So I did my civic duty today and voted....it was the first really cold smoke-blowing day we've had with a leaf stripping rain coming down from daybreak.....and what do I see, but dozens...no hundreds of coffee drinking, smart phone addicted, spoiled to central heat and air, never step outside except to get the mail or run to the grocery, city dwellers wading through puddles ankle deep, queuing up to patiently wait their turns...to vote. It was awesome and I confess, I got a bit teary eyed when after 90 minutes my turn finally arrived to make my choices and cast my ballot. What an amazing country we live in...and I am SO thankful for it!

I think I will try and post...either here or on Facebook, something every day that I am thankful for during this season of Thanksgiving/November. Today I am thankful for beautiful Autumn days, cool breezes and sunny days....
We have wonderful Autumns in the South....brilliant skies and bright foliage...much of which hasn't even begun to change here near the city. We have extremely pleasant weather for much of it...with temps ranging from the 30s at night to 60-70 degrees during the day. I love sitting on my front porch in the afternoons with the sun beating on me, warming me to my bones....delicious! Soon the rain will come and wash away the beautiful leaves...soon the air will chill, too much to enjoy the porch but for now.... I will be thankful for God's goodness in Autumn.
