I love the magical moments, the moments that engrave themselves on my mind imprinting so deeply that many years later I can take them out and appreciate them anew. I was up extra early this morning – 4 a.m. in fact. Don’t ask. At any rate, as I was up I decided to go out on our balcony to welcome this new day and received a blessing. Below me, under the tree in the back yard were two foxes. One was dark in color and the other was definitely a red fox. The darker colored fellow has been visiting intermittently for about a month. I tried a while back to capture an image of him without success. This morning was the first time seeing the red fox. There really is something moving, eloquent, and beautiful about seeing wildlife at any time but in the darkness of the night it seems especially magical. As I watched the red fox sat under the tree and I went inside to grab my phone and was able to capture a decent image of her. It’s not a particularly great image but I am grateful for it. I am hoping our visitors will return, not just to capture images of them, but for the magical moments they provide. Wherever you are and whatever is going on in your life at this time, I hope you recognize the blessings this day brings. I hope you experience many magical moments in life.
