September 11th.

It used to be just another day. But now it is a day to remember how blessed I am. It’s a day to remember that we never know if we will be given another day.

Today I am irrigating the pasture and watching the horses play in the glistening water. I see the green all around me, the blue sky and the mountains in the background. 

It’s really quite nice to rest against a shady tree and think about how blessed I am.

Most of us really don’t have much to complain about. But somehow we usually do. Me especially. But on days like today I can really think about it. 

I have a healthy body, people who love me, clothes that fit, food to eat, a house to keep me safe and three boys who make my life complete. 

I have a great life and I don’t need a big house, fancy clothes or nice fingernails to be happy. I would like to have those things, but I don’t need them to be happy.

I am so thankful that I have been given another day so I can reflect on how great life really is.
