Oh What a Wonderful Day

My day started out absolutely wonderful. I got up to watch the meteor shower. Then stayed up to watch the sunrise. Years ago, I watched these beautiful sites with my mother and my daughter. Now I had to go it alone. My mom wouldn't understand why I would wake her up in the middle of the night to go outside. Then,  my daughter is at college. She claimed she was going to watch it too. I think she wanted to make me feel better about being out there by myself. Well I didn't mind in the least bit. There's something about the middle of the night that seems so peaceful. To be able to look up and see such a spectacular site is just  amazing. Then to sit and wait for the sun to rise and the world around you come alive. See, how can that not be the start of a wonderful day? I am very grateful for what I got to see and for the perfect memory of the night long ago. I just hope my daughter got to remember that cold fall night when we all were together.
