I recently read about this unfortunate incident.
When October came, late buds on our rose bush faced an uphill battle to bloom before the weather turned. Some were barely formed, others beginning to show color. Two or three began to open.
When you hear or think of someone being “by themselves,” it usually brings sadness to your heart. No one wants to go it alone. No one wants to do life by themselves. But some times it is needful and the only way something can be done.
What are the qualities that others see in you that you are most proud of? That might be the kind of question you could expect at a job interview, but probably not something that you think upon often.
As fall begins, the days grow shorter, the weather grows colder, and many of us begin to count the days on our calendar. We count the days for pumpkin spice to take over our favorite coffee shop. We count the days until Christmas. Sometimes we even count the days until next summer.
