I am so sorry that I didn't greet you when you first arrived. You see your previous sisters, May, June, July and the worst of all August have been so brutal. I really don't think I had the heart this year to even think as much as normal about your coming. I thought because sometimes in years past, you just go along with the crowd. So thank you for restoring my faith in you this morning.
I could hear the sound of the ocean in the leaves on the trees. So September I greet you with a happy heart.
The sound of the wind chimes tinkling as the breeze passes over is I admit exhilarating. I sat and listened today to the sound of the hummingbird with his funny sawing sounds he makes as he sings his love songs to you. The blue jays I believe are even happier. As if a thing such as a happy blue jay exists. (Have you ever sat and listened to them gripe and complain under their breath?)
"Aw yes, September has arrived." My heart sings again that Autumn will finally be here and my heart and soul can finally be at home.
I am so glad you finally came! Welcome home September!
