September’s Gifts

September can be that bittersweet time, just like the invasive vine. For some, it’s the shoulder month; a sign of the garden ending, a time of clean-up and raking leaves. But for others, like our local farmers, it’s the heart of the harvest season.

We all run on different cycles, even if we all participate in the same 24 hours. So on this spectacular Monday morning, a repeat performance, a message from last September feels worthy of sharing again. A message about making the little things count, especially if your day is bountiful for someone’s morning that is not. But before you launch off to last year’s link, take heed to the Russian comedian, Yakov Smirnoff’s words. “It's kind of bittersweet. The human spirit is not measured by the size of the act, but by the size of the heart.” In other words, the little things do count!

And even when this glorious end-of-the-summer day can seem bittersweet, laugh. That is an easy gift to share.
