“Sunsets, like childhood, are viewed with wonder not just because they are beautiful but because they are fleeting.”
– Richard Paul Evans
Tomorrow morning the movers arrive, so I’m packing up the last remaining items and thinking about the end of this chapter in our lives.
“Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.”
– Rabindranath Tagore
We’re in Oregon, so often it’s overcast or rainy, but we’re on a hill, and our deck faces west, so when there is a sunset, we have a great view of it.
“Never waste any amount of time doing anything important when there is a sunset outside that you should be sitting under!”
– C. JoyBell C.
My husband and I make it a practice to check the sky each evening to see whether we’ll have a sunset. Over the years we’ve lived in this house, we’ve seen many glorious sunsets and felt grateful for each one.
“There’s a sunrise and a sunset every single day, and they’re absolutely free. Don’t miss so many of them.”
– Jo Walton
We won’t have a sunset view (or sunrise either, for that matter) in our new home, so we’ll have to make sure we create a new ritual for our evenings. A time to relax and to think about all the things we’re thankful for.
