My View


This was my view this morning.  Beautiful.  To me that is.  To others it may not be and that is fine.  They have their own view that they think is beautiful.  Each day I am blessed to be able to look out at my view, take a step outside, breath in the fall air and say, “Thank you”.

Thank you for what?  For another day on this earth.  For a husband who loves me and children who need me.  For the wind and the rain and the sun and the moon.  For the talents God has given me.  For the crops and the livestock.  For family and friends.  For a roof over my head and food on my table.

There are things that make us unhappy, sad and even mad.  These things can only do that if we choose to let them do so.  So today I chose to look out at my view and remember that, “Every morning I wake up knowing that I am truly blessed and right where God planned for me to be.” 

No matter what is happening in the world, country, your state or your home town; say a thank you for yet another day and a view to look at.

Blessings to you,

Laurie – Country Link

    Gratitude helps us have a quality of life that just isn’t possible otherwise. I like your views.

    I hope our South Dakota counterparts have found a handful of things to be thankful for, too. Even just the simplicity of their gorgeous prairie view…good thoughts, Laurie. Meaningful and attainable by each of us.

    • We were retaging a group of heifers this week and I kept thinking of the ranchers who were having to find and account for their lost livestock buy collecting tags.

      At the end of the day, I do hope all of us have or find a view we can love and appreciate.

      Thank you again for you thoughts and words E.G.!
