I am one of those old school people who still have a daily newspapers delivered to my house. During the work week when I go outside to get the newspaper, it is dark and the moon and the stars are still shining in the sky.
It's a great time to collect my thoughts for the day.
This morning I took a moment to stand still on the sidewalk, take a deep breath, and say a prayer of gratitude for a new day and whatever it might bring. As I gazed at the quiet beauty of the moon hanging in the early morning sky and the stars twinkling about it, I was reminded of the saying and unfortunately I don't know who wrote it:
I saw a star slide down the sky,
blind the north as it went by,
too burning and too quick to hold,
too lovely to be bought or sold,
good only to make wishes on
and then forever to be gone.
Safe travels today!!
