In a World With Octobers

"I'm so glad we live in a world where there are Octobers." --L.M. Montgomery in Anne of Green Gables. I saw this quote this morning, and immediately stopped. Because, for the first time in a long time, I agree with it.

Octobers have trees that burst with warmth and vibrance before we're ushered into a canvas of winter white.

They toss out chilly winds and terrifying tales and spooky walks in the night so that we can cling tighter to the ones we love.

Octobers reignite our imaginations. With owl hoots in the night, long shadows, and Halloween costumes galore--we reposition ourselves in a world where our minds create something wonderfully magical

And they guide us through the weakening daylight hours with their crackling bonfires and smiling jack-o-lanterns.

They fill us with a richness that no other season can. In Octobers you feel more deeply. Scarves feel cozier, drinks are warmer, leaves are brighter.

And Octobers remind us that though the world is getting very dark and very cold, the promise of Christmas is not far off.

Octobers tell us that the story is not over yet.
It has only just begun.

And for that, I am so glad we live in a world where there are Octobers.
