Live hopefully. During autumn, leaves wither and fall to the ground. Flowers stop blooming. Cold begins to seep into our homes and chill our bodies. But, in the midst of this decline and decay, there is remarkable beauty and life. So, too, it is with our life journeys, and as we move through autumn, we can take heart from the examples around us that aging does not mean we cease being active, vibrant, and beautiful participants in the world.
