Sometimes you wake up very early, and can really enjoy watching the world come alive. The temperature was in the fifties, and as the sun rose I saw wisps of fog rising from the pond. I walked around with the dog, taking in the sights and as the sun came up it highlighted the mist rising all around.
The yellow lab was fascinated and wanted to jump in the water… he sat down eventually and relaxed. I’d like to think he was enjoying it too.
It was calm, and yet the mist was slowly stirring in circles, moving above the surface of the water, drifting across and towards one end, moving as wisps and pushed by something gentle and unseen…
It’s one of those days I love to share with everyone… but only I was awake. Like many things, it didn’t last. Within a half hour, the air had warmed and the magic was gone. I can share it here with you however, and it’s a perfect day because today is my Mother’s birthday. Let’s just say she has a few decades on me yet. I can’t think of a more beautiful day and picture to wish her a Happy Birthday. If you can think of someone you’ve always known, that puts you at ease and who always offers love and kindness… that’s her.
One of these days I’ll put her picture here. Probably with flowers and gardens. And I’ll share a few stories too. In fact she still digs and plants with greater endurance than folks half her age. Our challenge is getting her to slow down. I should know better… Happy Birthday Mom! :)
