Your life is not waiting for you over the next hill — or once you get married, or start a family, or buy that dream house, or get that raise, or retire... .
Your life is NOW. Right here, today. It might not be super exciting, and you may be dealing with problems, but life is going past every day. It’s how we treat our mundane days that determines how fulfilled our ‘dream life’ will be. .
The temptation to live for the ‘next thing’ is strong. Don’t be fooled — you can be just as happy where you are today as you could ever be in different circumstances. You can’t run away from you. .

There is one extra step in our processing routine for the bull yearlins, if comparing them to the heifers.
This little extra step, when done by the hun-erds, quite substantially increases a 4 year old’s vocabulary... It increases his awareness of himself if you're smellin what I'm stepping in.
And, of other folks as well.
To Anyone who may Potentially converse with mah boy.
AKA his teachers, grandparents and our friends:
I apologize for his (impressive) ability to accurately relate just how big “they” are🤷🏼♀️, to things most kids would never imagine in such a light. Toys included 😂.
Please: DO act surprised when he gets all wide-eyed while he’s telling you precisely just how big “they"are, and arrives to the end-all comparison, which is that somehow they are EVEN WAY bigger than his, as though the sheer idea of this possibility surely must be a miracle and yet on the same hand, also *A freak of nature*.
And ladies, if he calls you a cow, a heifer, or both… he ain’t calling you fat.
It’s just that he is trying to sort out which one of these legitimate classifications of cattle you are in his precious little mind…
He often gets the two confused, and you are lit-ra-lee (aka literally) a walking flashcard for him to practice on his cow vocab with his daddy.
Cheers to the kids who see it all, growing up barefooted down dirt roads, where mud puddles are baths, swinging gates are jungle gyms, goats are lawn mowers; sheep are weed eaters, flea bitten dogs are their best friends, rogue cats are the reasons for their face scratches, bulls have big balls, cowboy hats keep the sun off their backs, they finish every day with dirt in the folds of their necks and under their nails, where the chickens scratch up their momma’s front porch plants, where the coyote pups hunt mice in the wood pile behind the house, where they play with guns and learn how to shoot, RESPONSIBLY, and where we teach our kids about death, and the LIFE they are witnessing before their very eyes. LIFE, and how it is given. Bulls and Heifers. Cows and calves. Ashes to ashes and dust to dust. Sunrise to sunset. The give and the take. The love and the hate. And how the world just spins.
