Gratitude Spiral: Day 357

Today, I’m grateful for shooting stars.

Yesterday morning, I got up around 5am and stepped out onto my back deck to catch the tail end of the peak of the Leonid meteor shower. In the pre-dawn chill, I stayed outside for less than ten minutes, but managed to see a few short streaks of light just above the western tree line. When my kids were little, I’d wake them up in the middle of the night and we’d bundle up and lie on the back porch, watching the sky. These days, I treasure my sleep, so I took my chances at 5am. And was rewarded. 🙂

Gratitude Spiral: Day 354

Today, I’m grateful for a cool starry night.

I like to step outdoors after sunset when these warm autumn days are cooling down, and look up at the clear sky full of stars. It’s a quiet beauty that we can easily forget about as we go about our busy daily lives.
