It’s Beautiful, A #writephoto tale

“Daddy. I’m cold. Why are we out here in the dark anyway?”, said my daughter, shivering slightly.

“You will see soon, pumpkin. Here, drink some hot chocolate and pull that blanket around your neck more.”, I replied.

I had waken her early knowing we would have a spectacular light show once the sun started to rise. I knew she would absolutely love it but I may have set us out too early. She was bored and starting to get cold. I hugged her closer.

“Do you see how it’s starting to lighten up? It won’t be long now,” I said.

“Long for what?”, she replied, a bit glumly.

“For that!” I pointed to the far horizon, the first of the sun’s bright gold edges just cresting the hill.

“Oh Daddy, it’s beautiful!!”, she exclaimed, wonder in her eyes. “Thank you so much!”

“You’re welcome! I knew you would like it!”

We watched as the sun continued in to full view, enjoying the moment together before heading back inside for some breakfast.
