Standing in front of the french doors, looking across the deck through the bare forest trees over to a distant hill…I see the sun rise this morning. *
At first a beautiful rosy glow crosses the eastern sky, changing to a paler warm orange…
Until the light disperses the color, and the sun finally peeks over the horizon.
Thinking about the arrival of 2013, I assess the joys and challenges of this past year.
This reflection provides reminders…,
a possible change in perspective…
a sense of renewal…
And, taking a breath,
I decide I can slowly begin moving forward with courage…
peeking over the horizon into the New Year…
*Do you have a sense of newness as the New Year begins?–For your life, family,or creative pursuits?
