This may be really cheesy, but my mom and I have always had a thing for the moon. It is absolutely breathtaking. In my small town you can look up on any given night and I promise you will see a sky like no other. The stars are always out and the moon always looks so different, yet so beautiful. My mom and I always notice and look at it. It has been kind of sad coming to college because:
1. I now live in a city and the stars are hard to see.
2. I don’t have my mom here to look at the moon with me.
Last night I received a text from her saying that I need to go out and look at the solar eclipse. This almost brought tears to my eyes because it makes me miss my mom, but then I started thinking about it. How cool is it that we got to experience a solar eclipse and how cool is that my mom and I could both see it even though we were miles and miles apart? I mean the moon is just one of those things that will always amaze me.
This also worked out well because I had a current event due on Tuesday and I decided to find an article about the solar eclipse. This taught me so much about it that I never would have known. For example, did you know that the next eclipse won’t happen again until 2048?! Isn’t that crazy?! I feel extremely blessed to have seen this first hand. It would have been better seeing it with my mom, but at least we both got to witness it. If you missed it, I highly encourage you check it out in 2048!
Super thankful for the beauty God gives us everyday. Thankful I also get to share that with my mom!
Southern and Thankful
