I am realizing - I LOVE fall! Don't get me wrong, I am unabashedly a summer girl. I love the heat. The late nights. Light from the wee hours of the morning until well after nine... but as the season is changing around here I'm finding a new spring in my step. I like the crispness in the air. Being able to pull out my jeans and boots. The smell of crockpot dinners that just don't sound as good in 90+ heat. The difference, I think is that I'm not in a rush for fall - so I just enjoy it. Each day is a new journey further into fall - as opposed to spring and summer when I am incredibly impatient for the fullness of that season to be here!

Back to Adoration - it worked out to swing by after Karen's speech session. I got lost on the way, so was only planning to stay about 10 minutes (you know, break the kids in slowly). However, because it took us so long, we were there when the 3:00 hour came. They started a Divine Mercy chaplet and we stayed. It was just the prayer and the extra time in front of my Lord that my heart needed. The kids behaved... I don't believe in coincidence... I might just have to get lost every week! :)
