Why Sunsets Are So Special


Sunsets.  Colourful bands of light mesmerizing us with striking beauty.  If only we could slow down and truly enjoy the ending of a day gazing at the setting sun until it disappears beyond the horizon.   I can easily do that on vacation, but at home, when life is hectic, it is really difficult to just stop in awe and take it all in.  I live in a small farming community in British Columbia, Canada.  We have some of the most beautiful sunsets!  (Two of which are featured on this post.)

Thankfully, I have a new connection to sunsets.  My Mom passed away almost 2 1/2 years ago now.  One of her favourite things in nature was a sunset.  When the rays of light streamed through the clouds she would always say, “It’s like the coming of the Lord.”  To which we all smiled and giggled.  But to her, it was meaningful.


Today when I see a sunset, my heart is immediately warmed and I feel a loving connection to my Mom.  Ever since she left this earth, I appreciate and am grateful for each and every sunset.  My heart string that is connected to hers gets an unwavering and enormous tug.  I love you, Mom.

Sunsets are proof that no matter what happens, every day can end beautifully.”
