Lost Words, Found: Sunrise

 

In searching for an actual, printed photo of my dog to submit with our rental application, I found a box of stuff that I guess I meant to look through some day. One of my old business cards was in there, with some writing on the back. This is what it said:

6am Saturday, May 31, 2008

I haven’t seen a sunrise in a while. 

It reminds me of college, of staying up all night just to see the sun rise. Over campus, over the ocean, over the fields of Indiana. I think of the girls; the boys I loved. It wasn’t the dawn of a new day, it was a beautiful closing scene to a great day. It wasn’t about hope – it was about the satisfaction of living. And friends.

Life is good.

It seems so fitting to discover this today, on the 10 year anniversary of my college graduation. Just… wow. Life! Beautiful.
