The Sandwich Generation Granny Nanny Musing About the Waning of Autumn Bliss

by Kaye Swain

Autumn bliss! I have enjoyed this autumn so much! I think partly because, even though it has been one of my busiest years, this was the first time in over three years that someone dear to me was not dealing with surgery and recovery. That's definitely a strong win for any of us in the Sandwich Generation, isn't it?  I went for a lovely long walk yesterday to soak in the fall foliage and realized that, even though autumn is waning, there's still autumn bliss out there. Wonderfully colorful too – look at these gorgeous reds and golds.

Speaking of red - check out these lovely colors at the end of a delightful autumn and fall season for the Sandwich Generation granny nanny

I even found late red roses here and there!

And for that matter, even though it's probably tied with summer for my least favorite season (because both mean less outside playtime with grandkids – leading to way more wiggles), there is definitely beauty to be found in winter as well. Won't my senior mom love these photos on her iPad? :) 

The leaves may be gone but these lovely red cherries put sparkle in the Sandwich Generation granny nannys eyes

Even in the preparations for a safe winter, there's sweet beauty. And a lovely reminder to help us help our aging parents be prepared as well.

The Sandwich Generation needs to be prepared for all events including a power outage on a cold winter day

Have a lovely week!
