The Witch on the Way

I’m so grateful to people who decorate their houses and yards, especially this time of year.

This little witch, with her orange hair and striped stockings, she’s on the way to church, and I’ve passed her every Sunday, for a month now. She makes my heart happy, every time I see her.

I’m thankful to those who put out pumpkins and cornstalks, hay bales and scarecrows, all for me to see, as I pass by. I’m sure they do it to make themselves happy, upon coming home, but in the process, they’ve brightened up my days, as well.

So, to the person who put that little witch in the flower pot, thank you.
