November Beauty, Leaves and Fun-Cheryl Wyatt
Cheryl Wyatt here.
All of the leaves were blown off the trees this week from wind, but days prior, the trees were so gorgeous. Now there is a huge pile of raked leaves in the yard and I am so tempted to run out there and kick them around for the fun of it. I had the urge to run and jump as high as I could and just land right in the middle of them. I'm a 40 year old woman though and neighbors were watching...LOL! So I just looked at the leaves and remembered when I was little. How my sister and I would play outside in the leaves forever. One never forgets that swoosh and crunch sound.
I'm not sure what it is about fall and leaves that brings out the fun in us. That pulls that child forth who we used to be.
I went to rake the leaves into a bag but my teen niece who lives with us begged me to leave them in a pile so she could play like when she was little.
Put the rake away and left the leaves. And thought about joining her.
Maybe tomorrow....I will.
Enjoy fall and the beauty around you. We only live once.
