The sun is out and the trees are green.  I feel like I can do anything.
Despite the curveballs life is throwing lately.  Despite the lack of sleep.

I feel like I can do anything.

(except sing in tune or eat raisins without grimacing maybe)

This is how Mondays should start.
Hope yours is off to a good start too.

This photo reminds me of the poem from Robert frost.

1. The Road Not Taken

TWO roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

Even though life gets rough it seams to even out, curve balls are what makes life real, exciting and interesting. If nothing happens in life we get bored and life is stagnate. Also as my grandmother always use to say, hard times builds character in people, it makes you have stories to tell when your old. Then she would grin at me and say wanna hear a story???
I hope you are building a library of wonderful stories about how you beat the odds, and learned morals that when your grandchildren are here you will give them, that they like I will did, will look into your eyes in wonder and wish they grow up to be just like you. So that farmers will always be, that is what keeps farming alive. Stories that make others hearts flame, burn with a desire to be one with the land, that still has challenge and adventure. The office life is dull and predictable. I admire you greatly... keep on living, we are all watching an amazing story series fall into place.
