The seasons are turning in the heartlands of Pennsylvania. Sometimes nature slowly transforms before our eyes with a seemly melancholy spirit. At other times, a burst of chilling air sweeps through the valley taking the illustrious foliage of summer away with the wind.

Like the seasons, change is inevitable in this life. The happiest people learn the art of seeing the glass half full instead of half empty. They make the best of every situation by letting go of the past and looking forward to the future with renewed hopes and dreams.

"Hardships often prepare ordinary people for an extraordinary destiny."  - C. S. Lewis

Change and adversity can be opportunities in disguise. Be strong and know that there are better days ahead.
