October's bright blue weather

"I'm so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.  It would be terrible if we just skipped from September to November wouldn't it?  Anne of Green Gables.  Yesterday's blue skies have turned to grey and the tiny yellow leaves of the locust tree outside my window are twirling like golden snow. 

O suns and skies and clouds of June, 
And flowers of June together, 
Ye cannot rival for one hour 
October's bright blue weather.

And today October 3 is Respect Life Sunday.  From the tiniest unborn to the oldest person in a care facility or in your own home, respect life.  You were once that little one and you will someday be frail in need of tender care.

We will soon be welcoming a great-great nephew (grandson of our niece) and would wish all children could be so celebrated.
