Autumn Glory

The autumn is my favorite time of year. There is just something about the crispness in the air and I have always loved the rustling and the crackling of fallen leaves. Even though it means winter is on its way, and my wheelchair and I no longer look forward to snow, I still do love the autumn glory.

When I was eighteen, I was going to school in central Ohio.  I had two suitemates, one from Texas and one from Arizona.

They had never actually experienced “fall.” I can still remember the complete joy they shared when they came into our dorm room with golden leaves in their hands. To them, it was a unique experience. They had seen the pictures, but never experienced the reality.

The holly in our front yard are also enjoying this time of year, even though it is not really their season yet.

Well, I only have photos to show you, but I hope that you will be able to appreciate these pictures, also.

It IS the season for fire bushes!

Behold the birds of the heaven, that they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; and your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are not ye of much more value then they? Matthew 6:26

That is a view of my neighborhood today! It is just beautiful in Ohio at this time.

About Raeanne Woodman

Less than a month after my twenty -fifth birthday, I had a brain hemorrhage. I had two brain surgeries at that time. It saved my life, but it left me unable to walk or use my left hand. I have been a wheel-chair user since 1989, nearly half of my life. I have always considered myself very blessed and quite unique. I graduated from Ohio State and went on to be employed by the university for twelve years. I met another unique individual at my church and he and I were married seven years ago. With this blog, I want to tell you a little about myself and how I've learned to live in our world. I love to cook, albeit with my own adaptations. I also want to share some great user-friendly merchandise and deals with you. And I would also be blessed if you would share your great ideas with me. This blog promises to be mutually rewarding!
