Happiness and cheer.
I'm so glad that I have a loving family and good health during the holidays. My good health flagged somewhat in the middle of the night last night. I woke up with a lot of nausea and a headache. I was getting out of bed when I happened to look out the window. I had to sit back down as I took in the view. It was breathtaking. The nearly full moon, clouds moving swiftly between us. I couldn't look away and I couldn't help but think how such beauty was well worth the otherwise unwelcome wake-up call. it gave me a thankful heart.
Eventually I couldn't put off getting up, but when I returned the view was still beautiful though shifted further into the treeline. Better still, the mild weather meant my window was open and I could lay upside in my bed and feel the breeze on my face and watch the moon and clouds till they set.
Trying to take a photo produced a pale reflection of the scene, as is usual for night photos, especially ones of the moon.
