I like watching the night break into the dawn and then into sunrise. When I was younger, more often than not I got to watch the dawn because I stayed up late and was still wide awake when the new day rolled by.
The last time I was up to watch the dawn was several days ago. I was up late working on something homeschool-related. I wanted to finish the work so I could leave it and do other things. I kept pushing myself with “just a little bit more and it’s done.”
Well, I didn’t finish what I was doing, but I got to watch the dawn. It was beautiful. After several consecutive rainy days, it was a treat to see the black sky turn gorgeous blue and the sun’s light peeking out from the cloud-covered horizon.
It was a lovely New Dawn.
