Hi Shenanigan Enthusiasts!
Rowdy continues to be ROWDY, bucking the feed and water troughs over for fun. Little stinker! As much as it makes more work for me it always makes me smile. The goats and ‘pacas are always happy to skip out of the barn in the morning. When I get the brush out they all line up pushing the others away so they can have their turn. The ‘pacas only get pets, and Buddy just can’t get enough. He’s such a love. Rowdy especially loves being brushed and petted and will demand it using his head to nudge me when I stop. Look out horns!! Shenanigans!!!
My Church, listening to my favorite tunes and shoveling sh*t. It’s always during this time that I talk to God with gratitude for all the blessings and the lessons that led me here. Yep, I know there is a song something like this, That’s where I find God by Larry Fleet. One of my FAVORITES (click to listen). I recognize the miracles all around me. I watch these sweet little souls tootle around the yard as a Magpie swoops in and lands on Rowdy’s horn, pigs wallowing proudly in their mud puddle, goats and ‘pacas soaking up the morning sunshine curiously watching the deer pass by on the other side of the fence. One sneeze from Buddy and all the Magpies fly away! Miracles, little things, little moments, are always something to celebrate.
What I know now
Little things really are the big things. A kiss hello, a kiss goodbye, a stolen kiss when no one is looking or maybe they are. Dinner at the table. The BEST conversations happen at our dinner table. The real, honest, silly, sometimes jaw dropping, holy sh*tballs, heartfelt conversations happen when we land together at the dinner table. A kind word, holding a door, saying please and THANK YOU, a smile for a stranger, a glance across the room that says I love you, SAYING I LOVE YOU, holding hands with your forever love, pushing your kid on a swing, pushing yourself out of your comfort zone, talking to God, patience, a special song that speaks to your heart and soul, slow dancing in the kitchen, laughing ‘til we snort, holding each other when we cry, standing back up when we fall.....the little things. The little are the big things, aka the important things, the ingredients to truly living our best life.
BEST LIFE INSPIRATIONS
I love LOVE
We had so much fun at Tommy and Grace’s wedding. I love LOVE! Their special day was full of love. You could feel the love of family and forever friends. Tommy turned around and saw his beautiful bride walking down the aisle, tears of joy fell from both their eyes, LOVE. We all had a wonderful evening celebrating them, sippin’ good sips, eating good eats, and dancing the night away! We picked up with old friends and made new ones too. The little things, the little moments, the little details made for a magical evening, celebrating one of the Big Things, saying I DO to forever love. The best SHENANIGANS!!!
