My love is usually out of the house before the sunrises and returns after the sun has set. If you’ve been following my blog, you know he took this week off from work. This morning, I awoke wrapped in his arms just a few minutes before the sun crested over the horizon.
Now the view from the french doors in our bedroom is one of my husband’s favorite. The rugged mountain and proud saguaros just make his smile. He says their simplistic beautiful speaks to him. As we laid together, the sun lit the few lazy clouds floating in the sky and turned them into golden ribbons. It was a special moment in time.
This evening. we were driving home from spending a day in town running errands. The sun was setting and had turned the mountains behind our home purple. For the first time in ages, we didn’t have a clock holding a gun to our heads. We were free to take a few minutes and enjoy the beautiful scenery around us. Dropping the truck into low-lock, we drove to the saddle of Pyramid Peak and made out like teenagers.
It’s amazing how the true beauty of a sunrise or sunset can only be appreciated if you have someone to share it with.
