It's almost Halloween, so we need to pick out a pumpkin to decorate our abode. Here I am in my pumpkin shirt, surrounded by the top contenders. They are both great pumpkins; solid, plump and colorful. I feel safe surrounded by these guys and am a bit sorry that we will be carving out scary faces soon.
I guess they are prepared. I mean all their lives, they dream of being a Halloween pumpkin, yes there is the occassional pumpkin that has a yearning to be a pie, but for the most part, pumpkins hope to grow big and strong and make an impressive appearance on Halloween night. And if you look at these guys - they both will have fulfilled their purpose.
It's different with us, we have so many more options for fulfilling our purpose and it can change over time. That can be exciting or overwhelming depending how you look at it. At this point, I have had many great opportunities and I believe that more are coming so I am staying positive and enjoying what rolls my way. And today that is two large pumpkins!
