Sunrise – A Mindful Exercise

At this time of year, my children and I see the sunrise as we walk to school. We get a ‘lift’ from experiencing the glory of it – a positive start to the busy day – and a reminder of Nature’s power. What has humankind created that can match a simple sunrise?  We take a moment to look at the changing colors with mindfulness . . .

We see Life in better perspective, which is not easy for middle-schoolers, or for busy-busy-busy parents either. Then we head into the day with a lingering feeling of peace. (Thank you, sunrise.)
