I grumble at times about the growing dark in the morning as I fumble my way in the dark to my treadmill. I don't like to turn on the lights, but have everything situated so that I can just slip on my sneakers, hop on and get going.
But this morning I was in awe witnessing the dark outside gradually lightening as the sun rose, with three of our cats lined up in their respective windows taking in this daily magic.
It was a reminder of the daily miracle of darkness turning to light which, if we're vigilant, we can see and appreciate in our lives over and over again.
