Today is …
… a chance to be better than yesterday.
… laughing and being forced to take a deeper look to find a silver lining.
… a trip to the bank, giving the dog her cookie, and taking a walk.
… the smell of fresh cut hay on a summer evening.
… sunshine on my face and an overdue breeze finding my sweaty back.
… a look at the inbox, a process to go through, hitting delete.
… a good hug and a long, intense look.
… walking the cows up from the back pasture at chore time.
… the plunk of wild blueberries hitting the bottom of a tin pail.
… catching a stranger’s eye and sharing a moment.
… recognizing where you want to be better … and falling a bit short.
… a phone call you don’t want to make and paperwork that keeps piling up.
… hauling a bag of calf grain out to the hutches.
… throwing bales of hay down from the loft, doing the chores, and planning.
… a sigh as you get into your hot car to go buy groceries.
… a giddy heifer playfully avoiding you outside of the fence.
Today is taking a look at all of the possibilities, scattered at my feet.
