I love this picture. I love the freedom she displays; the comfortableness with which she embraces what's around her. I have a hard time with change. A small change can shake me. A large change can send me into a tizzy for days, or weeks! Daylight savings time is always a time that I dread. I have an internal clock; an internal rhythm that ticks on it's own. I usually sleep and wake at the same general time each day. I naturally have energy and enthusiasm for the day being able to wake on my own without the alarm. Daylight savings time just messes that all up! I have to get used to it and it takes me weeks!! Change of any kind is just not my favorite thing. I like things to go as planned; I like to know what is going on at any given moment. I don't like things to be changing and unpredictable. I especially dislike being in "limbo". My husband is out of a job right now. I feel like I am in limbo because he will eventually find another job and our routine will change again. Until then, he is around and not in a routine which throws me off my routine. What is strange is that I love the seasonal changes though. Living in Kansas, we have distinct seasons. Every three(ish) months, the seasons change. Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall. Every season has it's beauty and things that I love about it. I find that I absolutely love every thing about Fall; it feels like a refreshing, crisp new start. It's like God is saying, "Wake up! See how beautiful life is around you! I have new things in store and you've got to be ready!" It's a time for deeper hues and jewel toned colors in our wardrobe and accessories. It's a time to dig out the cozy things in life, bulky sweaters, cable knit blankets, boots, and leggings. It's a time to take a deep breath and a long walk in God's creation and embrace what's around the corner and Dance, Dance, Dance!! Welcome Fall!!!
