E is for East

My Theme for the A to Z Challenge: Desert Canyon Living

East is the general direction of sunrise; it is the direction of the earth's daily rotation; and the part of the sky in which celestial bodies rise.

Sunrise is my favorite part of the day. I placed my old bench facing east so I can go out there and sit in the mornings, watching the sun clear the eastern mountain range. This may be a luxury of retired life in the country, but even with kids, a demanding job, and busy mornings try to begin your day with a quiet moment of gratitude for a new day. 

Note: My regular features: Sunday Morning Reflections, Tuesday's Treasures, Wednesday's Book, and Samson Says will not appear until May. (Samson Says: Good, I need a break, Mommy. Hope Gracie won't forget me and go back to that Max dog!)
