Winter morning sunrise

I set an alarm before I went to bed last night. We haven’t used an alarm in our bedroom for several weeks now. It was fine before the holidays, we were getting up, but not so much over the past week or so. So I set one, not too early, just to rouse me a bit earlier. I went downstairs in the quiet house, turned on the Christmas tree lights, made tea, got the paper in, and then went to sit down and eat breakfast. Just as I was sitting down, I looked outside and saw this. It made it all worth it to get up, to remind me that in the winter, our sunrises can be so fantastic.
