|The moon looked even closer when seen through our windshield than it does in this photo.|
Her post made me smile. It was not quite yet dawn, and I had just looked down from the view through our windshield - of a huge, white moon. It seemed suspended low enough in the sky that we might almost be able to reach it, as soon as we crossed an upcoming mountain pass.
It was, of course, the same moon my friend had photographed from where she lives, so many miles from our car. Suddenly Earth seemed much smaller, and far-away friends and family much less distant.
I wrote on my friend's Facebook wall: "We have had a beautiful view of it in Montana! Great photo! It is gorgeous at dawn this morning as well!" She responded, "I was up at 6, but if it was out it was behind some clouds, or more trees. Glad we could all share the same moon!"
|Such a beautiful moon!|
If your friends and family feel far away - it may be helpful to remember that we all share the same moon. Our moon, sun, and stars (though viewed in different locations in the sky) are something that we all can see.
|My children and I will always look at the same moon every night, no matter how far they live from me.|
Has the moon ever been a source of comfort to you?
