You are such a part of me that even when we are not together, I can feel your presence. In the darkest hours of the night, I feel you in the moon glow. I see you in the calm peace of the deep nighttime forest. I can touch you through the joy of my mind. I smell you through the lingering fragrance of the blooming four o'clocks. I know your spirit is always close to me as we walk together in the manner approved by mother nature and I even look forward to the day when we will stroll together through heaven. Happy Birthday to my beautiful wife and my best friend!!
The other day we had our first big frost of the fall. Man, did it feel good outside early that morning!! The crunch beneath my boots as I went down to the barn to check on the bull, the crisp morning air, the vapor that hung in the air with every breath were just reminders of how great it is to be alive! It brought back memories of when I was a kid and we would have to get up early to take care of all the chores before breakfast and school and how, once it turned chilly, I REALLY didn't want to get out of bed back then. Nowadays, it's a different story. The older I get, the earlier I wake up and start my day. I guess that's just life.
