I love early mornings. When I had children at home, four busy, rambunctious boys, it was my quiet time. Now that all my boys have grown I find it's still my favorite time of the day. This morning I was treated to a beautiful sunrise as I walked past my sewing room. I wish I had thought to take a picture. Maybe next time. For today the memory of what I saw will have to be enough. The beauty of the awakening of a new day started my morning reflections. I went back in time to when I first joined the US Air Force and was stationed in Alaska. What an amazing, beautiful, colorful, 5 years those were.
Where am I going with this? The song to start us off on February 4th will be America the Beautiful. I would love to hear your stories of beauty found in our country; from state to state. Maybe these stories will help us remember to open our eyes, to be aware that right outside our windows we can see the beauty of our America!
