Home: The Place

Today I am grateful for wisdom and experience gained that helps me keep my job in perspective. I am also grateful for the moon visible through a light fog this morning as I walked Oliver. 

Yesterday I wrote about going back home to where I grew up and the people there. Today, it's about the place home is. Here are some of the many things about this place and area that I appreciate:

*The farm sounds and smells.

*Young lambs to intrigue little visitors.

*Seeing the sun rise and set across the countryside. It's a different view of the horizon 
than what is seen in the city.

*A beautiful February weekend to invite us to sit outside.

*The quiet that can be experienced on the farm that just isn't going to happen where we live.

*More stars visible in the night sky.

*Kolaches, cinnamon rolls and omelet breakfasts.

*The familiar roads taking us to familiar places.

Familiar and friendly places and people are true blessings.

    1. It's always good to get back there. The quietude of the farm helps slow me down.
