Last night the girls and I were outside cleaning up summer plants and getting ready for fall. Later this week a hard frost will visit our corner of the prairie. The girls both know I love to capture daily sunrise and sunset pictures. You might already know this because I think four of my last five blog posts have something to do with sunrises or sunsets. I promise I have other things to blog about but this time of year on the prairie the sun is captivating and maybe from our lack of moisture and extra sun this year it is even more breathtaking.
As I was ripping out plants, I looked up as Miss E shouted “Mama, I have your phone. Let’s go!” She took off on her bike toward the sun with my phone in hand. I ran inside the garage for my “real” camera and not just my phone.
Never fear. The little sister is always here. Miss A ran barefoot across the gravel to reach the sunset with Miss E.
And for that moment, my world stopped, alongside our neighbors drought stricken soybean field.
With the western sky and sunset as our backdrop, I was overcome with peace, joy and contentment, thanks to the sunset sisters.
Life is busy. Complicated. Full. But life is good. Life is really good.
