Here Comes the Sun, Little Darlin'!

I saw this quote on a friend's Facebook page, and I really love it.

“Rise and shine. I’ve always held such a fondness for that sweet old phrase. As though we are all little suns. As though we are all someone’s day.”

— Beau Taplin

I'm not actually a morning person by nature, so to be at a place in life where this quote doesn't make me grumble before 10am must count for something. But, I really believe after coming through darkness we learn to better appreciate the light. So I'm working on creating morning routines that set our intentions for a sunny disposition. It is not easy. But, if I had expected it to be easy I would have quit by now. There are a lot of days I want to grumble, and days I do grumble. But, the days when we can make it a point to great our glorious Sun are always the best!

I bought a beautiful sunhat near the beginning of July, on a day the sun was basking us in dry, comfortable heat.

I'm sure my dermatology friends would be really proud! So I wear my hat for our morning walks, which are a favorite part of the day, and my little darlin' and I greet the sun together. So, even on mornings when I'm pretty much caffeinating and hoping for the best, I have the look of someone who knows what she's doing.
