My job, family, and mind are ganging up on me. Ever feel that way? There’s too much going on. Yet it was hard to sleep last night while obsessing over my to-do list. When I woke up, I knew I had to somehow get happy before trying anything else. I’m alive, healthy and employed. Hooray! Look what else I found.
Friends just down the road got this miniature horse last week and invited me over to see her. Nothing wakes up your heart like the sight of a beautiful animal. Her name is Minnie Pearl. Clever, huh? [I guess you have to be a certain age to remember Minnie.]
We also had visits from the butterflies that hang out here this time of year. The picture below was taken with the zoom lens on my little digital camera. Wow! A hundred years ago we’d just have to imagine how this encounter might look.
The guy below also showed up near the garage. It’s not a very clear picture, but the bucks usually run before I can snap a single photo.
So as you can see, no matter how much work and worry there is, just finding a moment to be amazed and grateful can do wonders. I feel better right now. I hope you enjoyed this little breather, too.
