This morning before school, Pumpkin was playing her handheld video game (nintendo ds, for those who know) and called out to me.
I heard, 'Mom, come look at this guy!', and I had just sat down for a little break, so I asked her to show it to me, thinking it was the Kirby video game 'guy' she wanted me to see.
'No, Mom the sky!!!', Pumpkin said.
Duh! I immediately got up to look with her, and found the most beautiful red, orange, and pink sunrise coming up in the east. Just gorgeous. We admired it for a minute, and then I told Pumpkin the old adage.
'Red sky at night, sailors delight; red sky at morning; sailors take warning!' It was particularly accurate because I had just read that we had a wind advisory for gusts 40 - 50 mph, and a rain storm coming through in the morning.
I went back to sit down, and finished my coffee. Soon, it was time to get ready, and I called Pumpkin to which she responded, 'In a minute, Mommy, you just don't see something like this everyday!'
I went back to her to look again at the red sky! It was gorgeous, and now wispy, cirrus, clouds were whipping across it, much like glowing galloping horses, refusing to be corralled.
You don't see something like that everyday, and we both just took it in, nature's morning show, just for us. It was wonderful.
I am so grateful for that moment, and the memory of it will inspire me on many mornings to come.
Happy Hump Day!
I hope you find some inspiration in your little world today. :-)
