I am feeling much better today so I was catching up on my blogs when I came across this lovely post from Amy at The Happy Peasant. It is so beautifully written and the sentiment just says it all.
Thank you Amy for putting it into words.

Stepping Off The Train
And so, September has arrived. I have said it before, but, the changing of these seasons..? Summer, she reminds me of a beautiful visitor from afar packing her bags to leave us after so many lovely months of carefree fun, laughter and dinner parties. We begged her to stay, but she has other duties elsewhere. She promises to return again next year, though a little older and wiser.
September, he has already stepped off the train and is shaking hands with everyone, smart and serious in his tailored tweed suit.
"Goodbye Summer." We wave her off with tears in the corners of our eyes. Swallowing hard, we know we must do what we must, and so resolutely attend to the tasks at hand, with September offering his punctual and necessary attendance.
I am sure I'm not the only soul who feels this way. It does not get any easier as the years go by, does it?
Happy September to all the beautiful poetic souls who may stop here to shake hands with the man in the tweed suit, and to wave Summer off on her journey.
