What do you see?

Perfection is what I see!
As I stepped out onto the back deck this morning I gave thanks for such a perfect day. When someone asked me "Why would you wish to live out here by yourself with all this work"? I would love for them to be able to see this morning - there would be no question left for them to consider.

Before I placed a single footprint into the sparkling white snow I could see we had a visitor in the night - a rather large coyote who thought maybe this was the place to find a meal. Instead he found no welcome here and went on through to the forest and down the hill..


Life is full of choices and today I had many - I might have only seen that the work load will be colder, harder and longer this morning because of this blanket of snow. Instead I enjoy the cold clean air and was grateful for the strong body to carry me through the chores with ease. I could have fretted about how this was going to effect the camera folks who where coming today to the farm to take some pictures of this old farm girl and the furry farm family to go with the small article being written about my path since graduating their college. Instead I put aside my dislike of having pictures taken of myself and considered it a honor to be picked to be added to their magazine. Besides I know it is not my outside that is important in my world and if I do not measure up to others at least I know I do with those that matter. I could have spent my day lost in mindless chatter that I do so well but instead today I made a choice


LIVE IN THE MOMENT AND ENJOY THIS PERFECTION
