Changes in the Season

15 Oct

Good morning Caleb, 

The weather is finally starting to cool down a little bit.  The trees are changing from green to brilliant colors of orange, yellow, and red.  The dog days of summer are fading off in the distance, giving way to the cool nights and early sunsets.  The holiday spirit is building and Halloween will set it all off.  Come January after all of the hub-bub is over with all we will be left with is cold weather and the longing for dog days of summer.  We go through this cycle every year.  When it’s hot we want it to be cold, when it’s cold we want it hot.  We are never happy.

 I remember when I was a young child growing up.  I used the love fall.  We used to rake all of the leaves up into a huge pile then jump in them.  We would continue to do this until we spread all of the leaves out.  We would rake them back up and do it all over again.  Speaking of which, I remember when mommy, sissy and I were walking down the street with you in the stroller.  There were leaves piled up really high on the side of the street from where people had moved them there for pick-up.  I decided to push you through the leaves in your stroller, you absolutely loved it.  “Do it again daddy.”  So we did.  Your stroller was so full of leaves, you were almost buried in them.  We had a good time with that.  If I remember right sissy wanted to try it with you, but we did not let her.

The seasons of life will come and go, as they do the thoughts and memories of you and the fun that we had will come alive once again.  I can honestly say, “Sadness has found its place in my life.”  One day this will happen for mommy, sissy and bubby as well.  In the end all that will be left is the warm happy thoughts of you.  You go on now and have an awesome day in Heaven.  We will all be thinking about you and how awesome you are.

I love you like a fat kid loves cake,
