28 Feb Not Just Another Pretty Sunset
Today is Love Thursday at Shutter Sisters and I have had my photo ready since last week! But before I posted it here, I read Karen’s post and it stirred up a recent memory worth sharing. Again, tying in The Land of Ka’s Theme, Memory– talk about synchronicity.
A few weeks ago on my way to scoop up my daughters from Grandma’s house, the sunset beckoned me to to pull my car over to admire it’s blaze (yes, this luxury is exactly why I choose to live on the Pacific Ocean). I had my camera with me too–imagine that!
As I sat there enjoying the last sweet moments of the day, two young boys raced up to the fence down the way from me. Their Dad soon followed. As the sun was sharing it’s tiniest last light, the boys were listening to their big teddy bear of a Dad call out to the sun, “Good-bye Mr. Sun!”
The boys echoed his words. And then he said something that will always stay with me…
“Thank you for the day Mr. Sun!”
And the boys, learning an invaluable lesson of love and gratitude sang back together, “Thank you for the day!”
The sun bowed in appreciation and then quickly melted as did my heart.
