Acorns and Pine Cones

Maybe an acorn the size of a quarter is no big deal to you, but after our heat/drought last year left us with no acorns, this one is wonderful.  Knowing that our wildlife will have food this winter is important.  My heart was full of joy as we walked today and noticed that for the first time in two years there are plenty of acorns.  Yes, I am grateful for the lowly acorn, and the multitude of pine cones we are have now.  It is the little things.

So now the cone of Irma is coming into our neck of the woods.  Lots of rain and probably some wind and who knows Irma may change her mind and go someplace else.  But I think not.  Everybody prepare, and let's hope for the best.

Tonight, I am grateful for acorns and pinecones.
