Celebrate This Moment

 Around this farm we work 24/7 and party 24/7 - we do not wait for a holiday because we live each day to the fullest if we can..  Last night we celebrated a whole 5 minutes of rain and the cool breeze that graced the farm.  I sat on the front deck with Sherlock and my two baby birds just breathing in the cool (somewhat smoke scented) air. I gave thanks for letting the worry drop for just that night and be in the present moment.  This morning I saw my guard goat Sherlock making sure my truck was safe.  You see they had to take out the alarm because it kept shutting down the engine.  Now Sherlock has taken it upon himself to make sure no one even thinks of getting near the truck but me!
 Now don't let this sweet face fool you - he is serious about his truck.  He even cleans it by licking off the dirt - talk about detailing!!!  All this is hard work and a guy has to rest just a bit.  I could not resist getting a couple of pictures of him resting while make sure all was safe.
Yes, that is a smile on his face.  He knows he is loved, that he has a big purpose here and that all is right in our world for now.  I hope you find such a life and that today you celebrate all that is right in your world because we spend too much time guarding against what might happen instead of enjoying what is happening.  I can even forgive the poop on the deck or on my Welcome mat outside the shop door to see this gentle guy care so much for me and the farm.

He does look adorable there. Now see, if you just would have let them co-mingle with the ladies this year he may not have developed a crush on the truck ;)

Ah - the rest of the deeply satisfied of one with a purpose in life! So Sherlock, what's the secret?.....

I am thinking he is smiling because he has a full belly (he is a guy after all!) plus he knows you love him. *hugs*

Thank you for sharing such a precious moment!

Thanks ladies - Sherlock does love his life here and I so enjoy his every move even when it is to poop on my front deck.
