Through the slow progression of time, the sun always remains.
To you, they're just something to set up in the afternoon. To your friends, they might just be some flare for the yard. To your youngest kids, they'll be like stars that they watch from their bedroom windows. And to the older kids, they'll be the guiding lights that tell them they're almost home from a wonderful night with friends. And in college, they'll remember warm summers of staying up late, surfing the net on their phones while lying on the lawn. Not a bad return for just a little time in the afternoon, is it?
