The Beauty of Valley Forge
It's a strange feeling, sitting back as people are busily collecting school books, learning the ropes of their new classes and decorating their dorms.
Outside the birds are collecting sticks and the squirrels are busy burying those last few nuts.
It really is weird to have a chance to stop while everyone else is spinning.
I had a chance to do this recently. Andy and I went for a walk through Valley Forge. It's a place filled with beauty, despite the tragedies that made it famous. It is easy to imagine how this beauty affected the soldiers as they saw the first buds of spring pushing through the snow.
If you are one of those people being swirled around in the whirlwind of September, make sure to take a few well deserved breaks to admire the things going on around you. It's beautiful.
