I got up this morning because I had to help my sister. Her car needed brakes and she needed to take it in by 8 am. Hopefully, it could be done in time for her to go to work. Since I work second shift, I’m not usually up that early. I drag myself out of bed, go to the bathroom, and finally throw on some clothes.
She calls me to make sure I’m awake (oh yeah). I walk outside to my car and notice how bright it is. When you’re a vampire used to getting off work at night, the sun can get to ya. I marvel at the color of the leaves on the trees as I driving down the highway. I watch as the dew is slowly being burned away by the sun’s heat. As I get closer to the river, I see the fog shimmering in a white haze as it lifts up.
I’m looking at all these things as I’m driving to get my sister. It dawned on me that it’s been a long time since I’ve enjoyed looking at this type of scene. I wanted to whip out my phone and take a picture of all that I was seeing. But I was doing 60 on the highway and that wouldn’t have been a good idea. Seeing those picturesque views this morning made me want to express to the world how beautiful it was. Sometimes we just need a little reminder of what has been there all along. via Daily Prompt: Express
