Saturday passed and she still was excited. She explained everything to her daddy as well and kept asking if it the solar eclipse was going to happen today or tomorrow. We told her 2 more days. Sunday passed and Monday was finally here. I have never seen her so interested in the sky as she was this day. Not even this much excitement for when we gaze upon the stars at the darkest hours of the night looking at the meteor showers or the falling stars. This was something completely different and unique for her and she was the happiest little girl on the face of the Earth.She sat down on the hot summer day on our back deck next to me just starring away at the sun, with the glasses on of course. She kept calling it a small banana. When the moment came for totality (when the moon is directly in front of the sun causing darkness on Earth) she gazed upon it’s beauty with eyes that just glowed like never before. She was so amazed by it and kept yelling, “Mommy, Daddy, look! Oh my goshhh! Look at how pretty the sky is.” Her expression was priceless. If my camera hadn’t died right at this moment I would of shared it with the world.
The eclipse was just total amazement. Not just for Bella but for me too. I felt like a little girl all day excited about it. The short few seconds it was up in the sky causing darkness upon us. The beauty of the sun glaring through the sides of the moon. Darkness but yet light. It was absolutely beautiful. Maybe not much for my dog who panicked as to what was going on but to my family it was the best and most marvelous thing God has ever created and put in our lives to watch even if it was just for barely a minute.
