As is our wont, the Hubs and I took in this morning’s sunrise. What an absolutely glorious start to Good Friday!
It occurred to me this morning – and not for the first time – that I have seen more sunrises with this man than I have seen in my entire life. It truly makes my heart sing with love to be able to share these precious waking moments with my best friend.
Maybe it’s just this current stage of life I’m experiencing where 5 AM isn’t an unreasonable waking hour anymore. (Hello! 50th birthday in a mere 4 months!) Or perhaps it’s simply the nature our life together. I’m sure living at the beach has something to do with it, that’s for sure!
No matter what it is that’s wrought these circadian changes though, waking up early has simply become the most special part of my day and a truly wonderful addition to my life! Besides… I like knowing that the birds start their songs 5 minutes before first light. I truly learned this recently. Isn’t that the coolest? Almost 50 and still learning.
