THIS is it! That glorious day in Houston, Texas that comes to all who wait patiently. Hope springs eternal this day. There is a little skip in my step, a flutter in my heart. At last–my favorite non-holiday day of the year. This morning, sun radiates through the trees, and the fragile, ever-crispening leaves shiver as the cool breeze begins to shake them to the ground. The chattering birds sense it, too. It is beautifully and wondrously cool this morning. Welcome first signs of FALL! I dance with joy.
