This is another edition of Friday Dance Party on Acorns On Glen. It’s the time where we give thanks for making it through another week and for being alive and present here on Earth. How do we celebrate another week of living? We dance. So, are you alive this Friday? Are you and your family safe and sound? Take a few seconds now to be in the moment and realize what a great life you truly have. Did you give thanks for that?
Good, now let’s dance.
It is a beautiful Fall day here in Connecticut. We’ve finally finished getting the yard ready for Winter. The patio furniture is all covered up in preparation for harsher weather. The garden pots are all stored until next Spring. We’ve trimmed all of the spent plants down and we are waiting for the rest to die off so that they too can be trimmed before the first snow. The garden is bare. There are no more tomato plants, green bean bushes or radish tops sprouting out of the dirt. We just can’t seem to believe that Summer is over. Isn’t there an old saying that says the older you get, the faster time goes? I believe it, especially this year. Mother Nature gives us four seasons and makes us abide by each one. You can’t make one season last longer or be shorter to suit your needs. She sets the schedule on her own agenda to ensure the cycle of life works. She is so smart, that Mother Nature. Sort of a know it all. That’s what made me think of this week’s song…Kelly Clarkson’s ‘Mr. Know It All’. It is dedicated to Mother Nature, who knows exactly how to control the seasons whether you like it or not. You’ve made it through another week, so go ahead and dance. You deserve to celebrate. Turn up your computer speakers and let it rip. Have fun. Have you finished all your winter preparation outside?
