Oh My It's May Again!Posted Monday, April 30, 2012, at 10:36 PM
One of my Aunt Lois's Flower Beds
Even when I was in high school, it was fun to lay the flowers on the doorstep and knock and run away.
Lots of Great Things happened to me in the Month of May. I graduated 35 years ago on Friday the 13th. My Daughter, Kelly was born 30 years ago. My oldest friend, Glenna will celebrate her birthday.
Of course, there is also Mother's Day. I will blog on that later.
And there is the old adage: April Showers bring May Flowers. Mmmm! Just breathe in the wonderful fragrance of the Lilacs, Irises and Peonies. And don't forget the roses either!
Life seems to have a fresh outlook in the Month of May. Summer events are planned, vacations are booked and weddings are anticipated.
And then there is the wonderful smell of sagebrush. Nothing can match that perfume! I still miss it when it rains here in Missouri.
One event, that we should all try to take a moment to observe this week is the National Day of Prayer. Prayer changes things. Our hearts need to be changed and our nation needs to be healed.
I feel so blessed to be an American. No matter how grim life can be, keep in mind that even a flower can grow in the desert.
Have a great week everyone!

Walking the Fence Line

Fixing fence is the one of the hardest jobs on a ranch. I no longer live on a ranch, but I do know what hard work is. Fences are everyone's concern, but nowadays,the "hole" is always your neighbor's side not your own. It used to be that you would respect your neighbor and mend the fence together. If their cows got in your field, a simple phone call resolved the problem. You might even saddle up your own horse and help them gather them up. We need more people who are willing to roll their sleeves up and fix the fence regardless of who your neighbor is. There are people in this country who need to be reminded that a fence is like the way you should conduct your life. Your posts should be straight and neat. The wire needs to be stretched tight and your gate might be closed, but can still be easily opened. And most of all, we can all saddle up together and ride the range, it won't matter if you have an Appaloosa, Quarter Horse or Thoroughbred. The cows still have to be gathered, fences have to be fixed, and the range is a wide open space of opportunity for us all.
