The Season's Changed, Yet Again
The Air Grows Cold, Bitter, And Thin
I Remember When Last The Leaves Turned Gold
Watching You Slow Down, Turn Gray, And Grow Old
7 to 1 Is The Ratio, Or So I'm Told
No Matter The Years, Love Still Holds
In Fact, I'd Relive Those Years Of Old
I'd Do Them Again Old Man
Live Them Ten Fold
Until I Become Slow, Old, And Thin
And We'd Be Together, At Peace, In The End
Seasons change. Our grief sometimes stays put. I know that a new season, especially the seasons coming up, can bring extra grief. This is hard the first time through too. We've been talking about the elderly years with our pets a lot this week, and it's been on my mind as well recently.
So, today, let's remember a time, maybe years ago now, right around October, that brings you to a pleasant memory. Let's remember for a while how they reacted to the seasonal change and how much comfort their presence brought to us during the longer and colder nights.
Join us if you'd like to share your memory with others today. If you can't, write about your memory or share it someone you love.
What new things did/does autumn bring in to your house? How did your pet react to the seasonal change? Did they notice at all? Or did they only notice because of their change in wardrobe? Let's spend a few minutes on a memory or two and then write and share.
