New babies growing. This is the 4th year I have watched this nest.
A bit of solace as the day ebbs on. I think of all the lovely areas I have seen this year and yearn to be able and see more. The spark that makes me keep moving is always in my heart and I find joy in sharing with all my friends I have had for a long time, as well as my new friends. I have made a few travel plans, but as we ready to sell the farm a tear is in my eye. My kids have developed a three company endeavor and need more land to continue with the livestock and meat processing area. There is also a developmental company that cleans up asbestos and other hazardous wastes to make our world a better place to live and a house inspection company. I plan on looking at a small place to hang my hat, but will continue offering inspiration and prayers for them to prosper as they have done so well. It makes a parent proud to see their children in adult years, but I still see them as youngsters. The other day I dreamed of them still in grade school doing an early cooking project together and woke up with my heart filled with joy. I have been working on a new project with a large inner city group that keeps my mind working full time. Last week twelve ministers prayed for the entire city to prosper and grow spiritually for the entire day. I felt the warmth and happiness carried to me on a gentle prairie breeze. Wishing you all health and happiness as our lives meld together and we share beauty that surrounds me.
Hello Bob Cat. A friend from Africa recently asked why I referred to all the bass we were catching as Billy. I am not sure why and felt it was a hard question to answer. It is hard like trying to describe chocolate or coffee to someone who has never tried them. Yesterday a young lady skating by on a path asked how I was doing. I smiled and said I couldn't believe she wasn't joining me. She hadn't been out since she was six and said she was 22. I handed my pole to her each time I got another and we shared my love of fishing for a couple hours. The excitement in her eyes reminded me of a good friend I have just lost and healed some of my sorrow. Hey Bob and Billy, glad to see you again!!!!
