Aah, a deep breath, listen to the birds sing and see a glorious sunrise.
I love to start the day that way. And this time of year is so pretty here in East Tenn for the sunrise, because it is always so full of pinks & oranges and so clear with it's reflection on the lake. Plus it rises around 6:45, so I'm actually awake to see it (oh yes, we are late sleepers in our house...)
But seeing the sun rise is somehow different. Its a new start, a fresh day, a hello to all of the possibilities that await! It's that time before the rush of the day to take that deep cleansing breath, and to take a moment to be thankful for all that I have. It's those few peaceful moments when everyone, including the doggies, are still snoozing away and all is calm. I can see with a bit of clarity all of my hopes and dreams for the future too, well at least for the day coming.
