Sunrise As Seen From Earth

When I was young I wished we could see stars and planets during the day. I thought it would help us remember that we are really on a planet swirling and spinning through space in a large and mostly unknown universe. I wanted to look up into the sky at any time of the day and see spheres suspended like a cosmic mobile on invisible threads, because I often need a reminder of how small and insignificant most things are on the third planet from the sun.
Would it surprise you to know I still have this wish? And mostly I get a hint of it when I watch the sun rise.
