Missing My Stars

21 Oct

As I was driving home I couldn’t help looking at the stars.  Yes, my eyes should have been intensely scanning the road for bears or deer or whatever creature wants to smash my car on the highway.  But I had to keep glancing upwards to the sky.  The stars were so bright tonight and I am so grateful that I am no longer in the city.

My husband and I had been living in the cities for the past 7 years.  When you live in the city, you get used to a starless sky.  You look up into the air at night and see darkness.  And to be honest I didn’t know I missed the stars.

But now that I have my stars back, I don’t know if I will ever want to give them up again.  They are immaculate up here in the North.  They are not only way up in the sky but they seem to reach down and touch the earth around you.  They go on forever and there are different levels of stars.  The close ones, the farther stars and the way, way far away stars.  The milky way is in the night sky and the big dipper is hovering over our lake right now.

I love, love, love my stars and am so glad to have them back.
