There’s a famous quote from the amazing Mr. Rogers that’s often used in troubling times. “When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, ‘Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.’”
I love this quote. It’s comforting. It’s true. It’s also a little hard to manage when the best thing we can do is stay at home. How do we see the helpers then?
It’s the first day of my favorite season, Fall! The nights will start getting longer, the days hopefully will be cooler, and the leaves will soon begin revealing their true vibrant shades (do you remember those science lessons about the green color of chlorophyll masking a tree’s true colors? 💖🍁).
Today, we get to enjoy a day of perfect balance, though. The night and the day are exactly the same length.
