How many times are we told that change is a part of life.  You can’t grow without change.  And yet we are so resistant to it.  Fight as we may, it still happens.  As life does.

Sometimes it’s stormy and dramatic and literally knocks us off our feet.  At other times, it comes quietly, softly and hardly discernible, much like a changing season in a desert.

The seasons of the year always remind me to cherish the day I have in front of me, and to not fear change.  It’s as normal and beautiful as life itself, and brings its own magical gifts.
