my son said with great enthusiasm as he burst
into my room this morning. I groaned as I turned
over to look at his face.
"It's so cold this morning," I thought to myself,
"I just want to stay in bed for 30 more minutes.
I wonder if we can see it from my bedroom window"
All these questions passed from my mind as I saw
the clouds of doubt begin to form on his face.
He thought I wouldn't get up.
"Okay, go get dressed."
5 minutes later we stood outside bundled against
the cold, listening to bird song and watching the
changing light in the sky. I noticed my breath as
I stood at the edge of my driveway while he went
on a little ahead of me.
No camera or words between us just my son
and me together in the cold but alone with our
thoughts as the sun peaked at us between the trees
He came back to give me a big hug.
"Thank you for watching this with me.
It was awesome!"
Yes, yes it was.
