Autumn Reflections

A few weeks ago, my husband had a heart attack.  It was the last thing that we had expected.  He was only slightly overweight and at his last yearly checkup, all his tests had come back perfect.  Thankfully, he is doing well now and we are learning to adapt to a few life-style changes.  Times of crisis tend to cause you to reflect upon and appreciate the good things in your life and the people who are there for you during those times.

“If winter is slumber and spring is birth, and summer is life, then autumn rounds out to be reflection. It’s a time of year when the leaves are down and the harvest is in and the perennials are gone. Mother Earth just closed up the drapes on another year and it’s time to reflect on what’s come before.”  ~Mitchell Burgess

  1. So sad that you’re going through difficult times. I will keep both you and your hubby in my prayers. Some of the most difficult trials can bring change, worry and fear, but God is always right at your side and will see you through,

  2. I’m so glad that your husband is doing well now, and pray for his continued good health. What a scare that must have been. Your words and photos convey this notion of reflection beautifully. And the images bring me fond memories of many beautiful walks through the woods when I lived in the northeast. Wishing you the best.
