Last night we had the most beautiful sunset and I wanted to share it with you. It seemed as if the sky was on fire.
My mother always loved sunsets. She grew up in the hills of Kentucky and lived nearly all of her married life in Connecticut. Though those are two beautiful places, there were always so many trees, she seldom saw a great expanse of unbroken sky. Four years before she died, she and my father moved to Texas to join my sister and me in San Antonio. I remember the first time she saw a gorgeous sunset there. She gasped and said she had never seen one as beautiful. The sky seemed so much bigger to her. I always think of my mother now when I see a breathtaking sunset. Here’s one for you, Mama.
