A Change in the Air

Two weeks ago, I went to a YMCA training course on Fiscal Management. Pretty much, it explains the budget, how to build one and how to monitor one so you can help with your YMCA’s fiscal responsibilities. I’m in a department that’s considered “overhead”—we don’t have a revenue stream, so the other departments cover us. But I’m not here to explain that to you. It’s just…background. Setting, if you would.

That morning, it had been freezing in my room and I had been hesitant to get out of bed. But I knew I had to because I had to go to this training. So I pulled on a nice warm shirt, some warm pants and then checked my phone for the temperature. When I saw it was in the thirties, I knew I had to break out my jacket for the first time since the winter. My car heater was jacked up and I headed on my way.

When the training was over for the day, I stepped outside and paused. Because it was a day that just screamed “November” to me.

It was overcast and the skies were gray as a cool wind blew. My jacket kept me warm against the cold air as I hurried to the car. Around me were trees, all starting to change colors. Reds, golds, browns and oranges stood out against the gray. It was beautiful.

For a moment, I just stood in the parking lot admiring how perfect a fall day it was. It just reminded me how much I love the season.
