What I have learned watching the sunrise and sunset:

Watching the sunrise is usually a part of my daily routine.  I try to plan eating breakfast, walk the dog, or exercise while the sun is coming up.   It is a time for me to reflect and to peacefully watch nature work her magic.  I am often filled with a sense of wonder and awe as I watch each unique sunrise and sunset.
