Montgomery Locals Oct. 4, 2017
I am thrilled that fall is here the older I get, the more it becomes my favorite season. I love wearing thick sweaters, drinking hot cocoa, and watching the leaves change color.
I also love all of our old town traditions, like football games (which wouldn’t be complete without the Red Raider Marching Band and the Halloween parade. I am also looking forward to observing some of our new traditions like the Pumpkin Roll.
The wonderful thing about old traditions is that they link us to our past, and the beauty of new traditions is that they are a bridge to the future. It reminds us that no matter how unpredictable life can be at times, we do have some control over our circumstances and who we choose to be. Every day we can choose to continue to grow, learn, and improve, or every day we can decline. In the age of constant distraction and perpetual digital entertainment, the choice to do the latter is easily made without our realizing it. But that’s why we each one of us needs to live with intention.
With cold weather fast approaching, it’s the perfect time to be inside and get things done. Make a list of all the things you’ve been wanting to do and set aside time to do it. You don’t have to do it all at once, but decide on a project or two that you want to achieve this winter. Maybe that means labeling the backs of all of your photos with the names of the people in them and the places they were taken. Future generations will be glad you did! Or it might mean dusting off the sewing machine or registering for a class of some sort.
Whatever you choose to do, do it well. And enjoy this beautiful season!
