To be honest, even though October is usually associated with cool temperatures and dampness, and the signs of winter ahead, I'm actually glad to be out of September and into the new month.
I spent nine days out of the month either in hospital or at a doctor's office or both. I've had more x-rays, ultrasounds, and blood tests than I care to remember. And I've had more bad news about friends, families, or relatives than I care to remember for a long time.
So, new month. New challenges ahead.
Thank Goddess September is over.
