This morning during efforts to get the kids on the school bus in the dark, our Irish Wolfhounds escaped out the front and into the oak covered mountain side. I stood there bathrobe and tennis shoes on in the dark, hearing the thrashing of the hounds, more than a little scared being out in the middle of the “cougar spotting” territory. I had just had my hair done by the cute Suzy my new “make my life better with cute hair ” friend so despite bathrobe I felt like I could say hello to neighbors if they happened to see me through the dark. I stood their thinking of cougars, those crazy dogs and all I needed to get back in and do today when suddenly over the east mountains I saw a glimmer of orange pink, then a hue of light and then the begiining of the sunrise peeking over. I stood in awe watching til my husband came out and asked what I was doing, I answered looking for the dogs, and suddenly the appeared thrasing through the oaks in the front and ran in to the house, I looked back to the sunrise and the moment was gone. Happy Halloween I said to myself, thank you God for the sunrise! And then back to my crazy busy working mom spooky crazy day!
