It has been a cool,wet, windy day here. I have been in a bad mood this afternoon about some things that went on today. I sat down and read a few blogs and realized I should count my blessings instead of all the wrong things of the day. Instead of being aggravated Baby keeps sticking her head through the fence several times a day. I am thankful she sits down and waits patiently for me to come and remove her head. Thankful she doesn't hurt herself trying to get her head free. Instead of being angry the hired hand forgot to release Sonya from the milk stanchion I am thankful I found and released her. Thankful that this afternoon I was able to milk her without locking her head in and she stayed calm. Instead of being upset over a phone call I am thankful I don't have all the stress, pressures or attitude the person on the other end of the phone has everyday. I am blessed I get to wake up each day and take care of the animals here at Hidden Haven. I am blessed they trust me to take care of them and provide us with milk, eggs and lots of entertainment. I am blessed to be able to stay home and have a small business. I am blessed to have a hardworking husband. Blessed to be able to dream and plan for the day he will soon be home full time. We have our aches and pains but overall we are healthy and able to do the chores and jobs needed to be done. I am blessed with loving, caring, daughters, son in laws and grandchildren. I am blessed with wonderful step children and grands. I am too blessed to let some minor things get to me. God didn't promise me all good times. He did promise to be right with me through the rough times and even carry my burdens if they got too heavy. So I am going to make a cup of hot chocolate,sit down and tell God thank you.
