Sun worship?

Yesterday, we had a sunset. Yes, in the rainy, wintery Northwest, we actually had a sunset.

In fact, it was such an occurrence that my 5 year old came to me and said, "Dad, Dad, come look at this in the kid's bathroom. It's so pretty!"

I wasn't exactly sure what he was going to show me in the bathroom, but I'll check it out. He stood on his tippy toes and was looking out the window at the sunset over the neighbors' houses.


It was really pretty, as you can see.

"Take a picture of it so Mom can see," he announced, since she was out with the other kids.

She enjoyed it when he showed her the pictures we took, since evidently there was no sun where she was.

Winter must be really rough this year, when even a 5 year old recognizes the beauty and rarity of a sunset. What is getting me through is that I came to the realization: when it is raining here, it is snowing in the mountains.
