Reflections At Dusk – Thursday Reflection Challenge

Life can seem stark and colorful at the same time. On new year’s day my husband and I felt kind of odd spending the day all by ourselves. Both our boys were not with us ( this is the first time we experienced this) and our home felt like a strange place. We took a drive around the city looking at the decorations and as the sun was about to set we drove by the pond, we were kind of late by a few seconds to catch the sunset, but we did get an awesome view. We got down to grabbing a few pictures of the magic of sunset.

The shadows and the reflections at the pond made us want to sit down and consider life. We agreed that this is how the rest of our lives could be , just us. We spent sometime reminiscing about the lovely times we have had together as a family and as a couple and we were so grateful to have each other. We have similar interests ( not necessarily the same) and we often take inspiration from each others work.  We love to work together and that could be our real strength.

Our discussion and reflection made us feel so much better as we left the place. We had dinner in a fancy restaurant ,  and life seemed to be magical once again.
