just a little sliver

moonThis time of year, it is very dark when I leave for work and it is easy to be grumpy about that darkness.  This morning, I pulled up to the stop sign and paused long enough to see this tiny sliver of the moon hanging in the sky.  And I thought about this new baby that is soon to enter our world, about tiny hands and fingernails and the miracle of birth.  Today I am grateful for the dark because it gave me this tiny moment of joy.
