Brilliant Pink Valentine’s Sunrise

This morning’s sunrise can only be described as thrilling.

The sunrise reflected off of the snow, creating a pink glow that brought the heavens down to earth. It was like a Valentine’s Day gift from God Himself.

Six years ago today, I received an even more amazing gift : Micah, who arrived after a mere 45 minute labor.

Eager to get out of bed on his birthday, Micah was awake with the sun.

He was peeking out the window when I came in to check on him.

“Did you see the sun, Mom?”

“Yes!” I said, camera already in hand. “I’m going to go catch it for you so you can save it forever!”
