Taking a deep breath, I close my eyes and experience the beginning of a new day. A crisp breeze gently blows across my face. The cool, damp grass chills my bare feet. A rooster crows in the distance. Opening my eyes, I watch the last of the stars dim as the sun makes its way above the mountain top changing the blue-grey of the early morning sky to soft hues of pink, orange and golden yellow. I am grateful for this brief moment of peace before I step into the hustle and bustle of the day.
