October is my favorite month. I love the change of weather. I think the trees are at their prettiest. Orange. Red. Yellow. The mums excite me too. (It doesn't take much). I love pumpkins, pumpkin pie, roasted pumpkin seeds. My love makes his first apple pie of the season in October. It's the month we found out we were expecting our first child.
I love October.
It's also the month that we've had many hard times. We have had most of our big arguments in the month of October. I've had the opportunity( another "O" word) to examine my faith and myself.
I am thankful for the trials of October.
