For some reason I've been waking before light these past two mornings. I think it is because on the 1st I knew it would be the last day of our daughter's visit and on the 2nd because she would be flying away that day. On this day as I sat in the darkness and quiet of the sleeping house admiring the lights of the tree and decorations I happened to notice that the amaryllis had bloomed. It is my favorite peach colored flower and somehow my heart lifted and my sadness at her departure lifted a bit, too.
