Sunrise on Miller Farm
A blog by Chicken Wrangler Sara
One of my favorite things about visiting my parents in Colorado is the beautiful sunrises. Since I get up and walk the dogs with my mom, I get to enjoy it every morning that we are there. This was the last morning we were there this summer.
Since I get up to swim and let the chickens out, I get to enjoy the sunrise on Miller farm also. This past week was particularly beautiful. In fact, I would say it is as pretty as Colorado. After all it is the same sun.
I was reminded of a journal entry from our time in Mexico City. It is dated 9-10-1997:
“Our bathroom has double doors with obscure glass windows. Catherine had her nose pressed against it the other night and was exclaiming ‘how pretty.’ As I looked at the black and green mosaic tile with bright blue and red paint, I could think of many other words to describe it. Yet Catherine was right – the light reflecting through the kaleidoscope-type glass was pretty. O Lord may I never fail to see the beauty in life.”
As we begin the Thanksgiving season, I plan to look for beauty all around me. I know it is there.
