Sometimes I take things for granted.
I am guilty of this when it comes to fall here in North Carolina.
Of course the leaves turn colors in October.
Of course it is gorgeous.
I forget what an unusual treat it is until I notice the ten-fold increase in traffic in the mountains.
Then I see what everyone else sees with new eyes.
The cold comes. The green goes into the tree and the other colors are left out in the leaves.
I hope I will remember this lesson about other things.
I live in a beautiful place surrounded by kind folks. I am lucky.
