I loved the first frost this past week, although it did take me by surprise! I had been putting off cutting the last zinnias blooming in the garden and now they are gone. It served as a natural reminder not to put off what is beautiful. The beauty before us, like the people in our lives, need to be appreciated in the present moment before they slip away. On Veterans Day, let us recall those who gave their lives for us. Enjoy your week!
