Today's Gift



The only sense that is common in the long run is the sense of change – and we all instinctively avoid it.
—E. B. White

Nature reveals to us a world that is always changing. No two sunsets are alike. Winter brings invigorating days while spring brings new buds and blossoms every day. Summer brings lazy warmth and star-filled evenings while fall brings crisp afternoons and a sense of nostalgia.

Even though nature shows us a constantly changing world, we often resist the changes in our own lives. Changes can be both hard and sad, yet they are a part of life. Perhaps we are moving on to a new school or a new neighborhood, or perhaps we are feeling the changes that come with a divorce in the family.

With every change we say a sad goodbye to something old, something familiar  – in the same way we feel sadness for summer’s end when the first leaves begin to fall. Yet every change also offers us the excitement and potential of a new season – with its own opportunity for new smells, special gifts, and invigorating days.
