Well, it will be goodbye to the bright evenings as the time goes back one hour over this weekend. Maybe it will be a time for more reflection on the things that really matter in life, like family, friends, and most especially God (however you see him/her to be in your life). I know the stores are already gearing up for Christmas but for me it's time to take stock of the year that is nearly at it's end. I hope that my life has grown in the past months for the betterment of those I love and those I find it hard to love. Even giving someone a smile can change how that person feels about his or her self. It even makes oneself feel better, too. It takes too much energy to hate and it does harm to your own well-being. Love takes energy, too, but it is well worth the effort.
