A Beautiful Moment

Jonas woke me up this morning by crawling into bed beside me and whispering "Mom please come and watch the beautiful sunrise with me." It wasn't the way I planned to start the day and, despite the early hour, I wouldn't trade it for the world. It was early dawn. The sky was starting fill with light but the sun hadn't yet broken the horizon. We kneeled on his bed, elbows on the window sil, chins on our hands and our eyes eagerly looking eastward. Neither of us said a word. We just watched. What an incredible moment. The innocent wonder of an eight year old who wants to share such a simple treasure is amazing. That he wanted to share it with me, an honour. Cheers!
