Two Of My Favorite Things

I'd wager to say that few things are as wonderful as the morning sun shining through the trees on a winter morning. I love being up to witness such simple yet beautiful things. To stand there, silent and slightly cold, waiting for brother sun to send forth his rays through the barren branches. It is so hopeful…By that light I can see that the trees aren't frozen skeletons but sleeping giants. And that I am small~so beautifully insignificant!

Then there is the soft warmth of the candle on the table. With its gentle flickering the shadows dance, reminding me of those wonderful giants outside my door, swaying in the frigid air and waiting for the morning sun. It is by the candles light that I hold on to the hope, to the light of the day.

Yes, favorite things, perfect days.
