🎶When I wake up in the morning, love…🎶 While I crave a sunrise and sunset beach side chill far, far away, I’m so grateful to experience this morning’s sunrise right from my hood. Did you also experience it? I sure hope so.
As his time drew near, it seemed that Pop began to see and experience people, places and things through an almost childlike in awe and wonderment kind of way. Like he knew he didn’t have time to waste on superficial things (With the exception of 45.). With that, he often could be heard saying/singing “That’s 🎶aaaamaaaazing🎶.” It was so cute and inspiring to experience his singing of the phrase as if he was for example experiencing something in politics, sports, music, nature, healthcare, food, etc. for the first time or just through a different open to receiving lens.
From our sixth floor window, Pop discovered the beauty and joy of watching sunsets, sunrises, or just to breathe and take in the beautiful trees and nature. On his way to and from the kitchen oftentimes he would pause and either stand or kneel on the couch to enjoy the sun, trees, birds, deer, or even locate my car in the parking lot. Here’s a video recorded Saturday, May, 9, 2020. https://youtu.be/Z6O3FeLoxOA
This morning I awakened to capture this beautiful sunrise, that I get to give all honor and glory to God and Pop with. I’m reminded and I hope you are too, that even in the midst of it all to pause and smell the roses. Like really pause, take notice of the beauties of this world, while taking deep healing and rejuvenating breaths that open up your heart to pumping freely with love, joy, and sweet Pop like giggles. To allow your inner child the opportunity to feed your soul and spirit. To: Believe! Breathe! Inhale! Exhale! Love! See! Feel! Heal! Love! Cry! Laugh! Voice! Listen! Connect! Engage! Forgive! Shift!
