Bidding October Adieu
October is my favorite month of the year.  I said goodbye to her today.  It was a most beautiful day today in South Mississippi.  The weather was wonderful all day long!  The high being in the high 60's for most of the day.  The wind blew scattering the fallen leaves everywhere.
My children, grandchildren, and great grandchild visited.  Special friends and love ones too.  They entertained me with their life like costumes of Super Heroes. Awesome! I think next year I will dress up too. I have no idea who I will be. Maybe I will dress up as a detox nurse, I will have some magical power to rid the world of  drug and alcohol addiction just by waving a wand. I can dream can't I?
I met my husband in October when I was fourteen years old.  He asked me to dance and dance we did!
Football season gets cranked up really good in October.  Don't know if anyone has noticed but looks like it might be a pretty good year for Mississippi! Right or wrong we really do live, eat and breath football here in the South. Nothin' ever really gonna change that. 
The best friend I ever had, AKA my daughter, got very good news on Thursday of this week concering a potential health issue.  We praise God He answered favorably.  Our hearts hurt for those that whose reports might not have been as good.  Lord bless and help them is my prayer. 
I will miss October.
It will be a year before I see her again!

October gave a party;
The leaves by hundreds came—
The Chestnuts, Oaks, and Maples,
And leaves of every name.
The Sunshine spread a carpet,
And everything was grand,
Miss Weather led the dancing,
Professor Wind the band.

The Chestnuts came in yellow,
The Oaks in crimson dressed;
The lovely Misses Maple
In scarlet looked their best;
All balanced to their partners,
And gaily fluttered by;
The sight was like a rainbow
New fallen from the sky
Blessings of Peace Ya'll

I enjoy October when autumn really gets going. It's one of my favorite times of year too.
