A single red leaf from my Forest Pansy tree
serves as a soft and subtle reminder
to begin each new day
with a grateful heart...
The warmth of the Autumn sun several weeks ago
coaxed a new leaf to emerge
amidst the gold and green of the Autumn colors of the surrounding branches.
This beautiful tree's leaves bloom red in the Spring,
deepens to burgundy with darkest green veins in the Summer,
then slips into shades of soft hues of yellows and lime greens in the Fall.
What an absolute delight to look out my window
and see this lone little heart
A simple and oh so subtle reminder
to feel the joy that only a grateful heart can bring.

Wishing you all the joys of this
Season of Thanksgiving!
