I had a completely different idea for this week's little missive, but then I walked into Home Depot the other morning and saw that they were fully, and I mean fully, decked out for Christmas, it gave me pause. What a stark reminder that these days it seems like we are always rush, rush, rush to the next thing. Always with one, or both, eyes on what's happening down the road; oftentimes to the point of forgetting to live a bit in the here and now.
As autumn arrives, I encourage all of you to carve out a few moments for yourselves over the coming weeks. Enjoy that extra cup of early morning coffee on the porch, take that hike on a sunny Sunday that's right out of a Norman Rockwell painting, cheer on that young family member at their soccer or football game, or curl up with your pet and a good book for an hour or two.
