I'll be honest with you. I am not a morning person. Usually, I force myself out of bed after hitting the snooze button two or three times. But recently, I woke up a lot earlier than planned and just decided to stay up to catch the sunrise. It was surprisingly and simply amazing.

At that moment, there was nothing more humbling than the thought of the sun rising each morning no matter how wonderful, disappointing or mundane the day before may have been. 

As the days grow shorter, I am even more appreciative. Every sunrise ushers in a new day with the promise of something new, better, different--and if you're lucky, more of the same.

Many blessings,
