I have always loved nature, and there is something thrilling to me about fall. Today as I was picking up Rachel's room I was feeling a little tired and took a moment to sit on her bed. While I was sitting there a light breeze picked up and the aspen trees right outside her window started shaking. I stood up, opened her window and leaned up to the sill. As I stood watching the golden leaves raining down to the ground, smelling the cool autumn air and listening to the quaking leaves rustle in the wind my heart was lightened and I felt overwhelming gratitude for the beauties of nature, and for the opportunity I have to enjoy them right out my windows.
