Last night, we laid low. It was necessary and absolutely wonderful. Relaxation time is so few and far between these days, so we stayed in, made dinner, and watched a movie together. I couldn’t have asked for a better Wednesday night 🙂 Thought I’d link up for a very contemplative Thinking Out Loud post today…
My alarm went off at 5:15 this morning, and we set out for a glorious run along Milwaukee’s lakefront. And we watched the spectacular sunrise.
The sun took its sweet lovely time rising this morning. And I couldn’t take my eyes off it. Clearly the sun knows how special and powerful he is, keeping all of us happy and healthy and prospering on earth. Thank you, Mr. Sun 🙂
I couldn’t help but wonder, and ponder, and think deeply about what the sunrise means to me. Every time I glanced over the water to take another glimpse at how far it had risen, I had another moment to think about another day that I am going to live and experience and create memories within. It’s such a beautiful reminder of how gorgeous and incredible life is; it takes my breath away every time the sun rises and sets. I contemplate my life, and what I still want to accomplish during this beautiful existence on earth, and I’m overjoyed with how many more sunrises I will hopefully get to witness 🙂
How gorgeous is that? But really… The sunrise consistently makes me feel overwhelmed with love and filled with awe. How simple for the earth to circulate around the sun every single day, giving us the light and warmth we need to live, and then see it disappear again, so we can rest our eyes and bodies and minds every night.
A few inversion variations later, I could truly understand why watching the sun come into view every morning calms me. It’s the promise of a new day. And the world still turns for life here on our wonderful planet to prosper and continue on. I am so grateful, and so astonished, at how our galaxies work together…how we all rely on our planet for every.thing. The sunlight is just one of those seemingly magical stems of life that we are graced with every single day.
Happiness doesn’t even begin to cover how he makes me feel ❤ I couldn’t be in a better place at a better time in my life. In our lives together. Thank you, love, for everything you always do and every kind thought or word you’ve exchanged with me 🙂 I can’t wait for more sunrise runs with you.
What does the sunrise mean to you? How do you visualize the sun every morning? Do you take moments to simply watch the sunrise?
Have a glorious and grateful day, everyone ❤
