All over the nation pumpkin patches are filled up with cute round pumpkins, cute kids, and cute kids holding cute pumpkins. IS that enough CUTE for you???
This weekend, our local garden center had a Fall Festival. While we were there, I watched my kids grinning their faces off on their way down the bouncy slide, I smelled fresh hay, and I ate 2.00 hot dogs. It was the simple moment I needed in an overwhelming world.
I’m not sure if you guys are overwhelmed with kids and activities in full swing, presidential election posts on social media, responsibilities and pressure to make good life choices, but I am. So some prayer and pumpkin patches helped calm my weekend, and brought much thankfulness.
I am thankful for fall and cider. I am thankful for round cute pumpkins that bring all the nostalgic feels. I am thankful for sweater weather. I am thankful that I live in America where we bounce on houses and not Aleppo where we would experience houses with bomb attacks.
We are turning down the overwhelming knob in our family, and we are turning up the peace, prayer, and thankfulness, and this weekend at the Pumpkin Patch we experienced some relief.
So, get yourself to a pumpkin patch or an apple orchard soon! Make some family memories, find smiles on hayrides, and let’s all agree to turn down the noise of the world this week, and turn up the peace.
