Grateful for Shelter

As we approach Winter, days are not only getting shorter but they are also getting cooler. The morning air is crisper and it is no longer possible to leave home in short sleeves. Already we have experienced days with icy winds that make us wish for the warmer days of summer. We have a few homeless people who regularly wander the streets of our neighbourhood and I have noticed that they are beginning to layer themselves with more items of clothing than they do during the warmer days. As I step into my apartment building out of the cold and ride the elevator up to my floor, I am grateful that I have shelter and that I have a warm place to sleep.

  1. Interesting to read fellow WordPress bloggers, describing the various seasons they are experiencing around the world Colline, you are going into a cold winter where you are , as is my friends in the UK, here we are into Summer and bushfire season, then other parts of the world experiencing snow.
    And out of it all we get to share our different seasons through beautiful pictures depicting the changing world of nature.
    Technology has made the world smaller.


    1. I agree Ian, it has. And I love it. Through the various blogs I get to see so many different parts of the world; and to see photos of experiences I myself have never had.


    1. I am too. I thought it would be a good idea to express those thoughts and feelings in words. Sometimes we take things for granted and sometimes expressing what we are grateful for in words, helps us to acknowledge the good in our lives.
