Throw Those Curtains Wide


Deer in the mist

(Where sleepy deer lay.)
One day like this a year would see me right for life.

What's the Story:
I am not usually up and out of the house for sunrise.  Especially not on a Sunday.
But our little man joined us in our bed during the night and so sleep was not really happening for me and I gave up early in the morning.
I needed to get lunches and breakfasts made for our students anyway as they were heading out for the day.
When I looked out the window and saw the glittery frost, I scrambled myself and the dog together to head out. 
I thought we would go over to the floods to see if they had iced over, but as I rounded the corner, I saw the sunrise and mist and all it's beauty luring me over to this field.
It was the most amazing sunrise that I have ever seen and I am feeling humble and honored that I got to be there to witness it.
(Dog on a lead because of the deer.  She was so happy though.  She seemed to know that something special was happening!)
