365 Reasons to Smile – Day 46
I don’t generally watch the sunset, unless I’m at the beach.
But on this particular evening, the whole sky turned pink, and I couldn’t stop gushing.
I also couldn’t stop thinking about something my mother used to tell me.
“Red Sky at night, sailor’s delight. Red Sky in morning, sailors take warning.”
As my daughter grabbed my phone and tried to photograph the beauty, I knew she wouldn’t really capture it.
But her photo does remind me of how humans will never be able to capture the magnificence of nature.
And even when we try through ditties and poems, neither can we capture the power it holds over us.
But we CAN capture glimpses of both.
And that always makes me smile.
