Welcome back to week two of celebrating the small moments in life!
This week I'm asking the question, "Have you seen the sunrise?"
Opening your eyes in the morning to look out the window and see the sunrise doesn't count!
I mean, have you ever purposely been outside and watched the sun rise on the horizon?

Every day, whether we can see it or not, the sun rises, leaving behind the dark of the night and proving that each day is a new beginning.
Each day is about a new chance to experience a little bit of joy.
But like many of the simplest things in life, we forget it's there, we take it for granted that everyday the sun will rise. And it does. Every morning. Without fail.
As the sun begins its journey toward the west, shimmers of pink and orange splash across the horizon, casting hues of warmth and hope - if we take a moment to get up and see it. Winter, summer, spring, and fall, the warm gold rays reach out to light the sky and wrap us in the promise of new beginning.
Every day is a new chance to change something in your life. It's a new chance to greet your day with a small joy.
When was the last time you got up to see the sunrise?
