There’s a window on the second floor of my house. It’s in an awkward spot. And, it has no view.
Well, it has a view – it’s of the side of my neighbour’s house, which is about four feet away from my house. It’s a view of faded green siding, the eavestrough, and a bit of roof.
Not a lot to redeem it.
Except last Saturday.
Last Saturday, as I walked past the window, a little jewel caught my eye. I’m not sure how – my head was tilted the right way or I was leaning in the right direction. Whatever it was, my eye caught a corner of the sky that took my breath away.
It was a deep blue sky, and the edge of a majestic tree, sprinkled with golden yellow leaves that looked like jewels in the sky.
A gift from the day.
