Sunsets Are Free

1 Dec

I should have known by the way the sun flare spread perfect rays across the back of floofer newf.

I might have been tipped off by the blue sky. Or perhaps the real clue was in the fact that there was no wind or rain out on the beach.

But that’s just the thing, you don’t know. You never know when you will be handed the perfect day. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to recognize and appreciate it when you are.

So when our walk came to a close at 4:13 with the sun dipping lower into the horizen, we checked the time of sunset. 4:37. “We should stay.” “I’m in.” I love when Susie says that.

So we did. We secured a prime location on a drift log, watched Abigail attempt to make sand angels, and mulled over the fact that we are oh so lucky to live where we do.  “Sunsets are free,” she said. And they are glorious around here.

As the last sliver of the sun sank below the glimmering waves we packed it up and headed  home — where I served up steaming cups of hot cocoa stirred with extra happiness.
