What a life is about.


We chase cows and sunlight and time.
Tend to horses that colic, deal with loss, knocked open polls and vet bills.
He hooks up trailers, fence chargers and ditchwater.
We go to meetings and weanings and appointments.

There just never seemed to be enough minutes in the day.


But enough is enough.

He provides all that we need. 
All of the minutes, all of the patience, all of the needs.

It's about doing what we can, where we are and with what we have.
About living looking forward.  And not through the rear-view mirror.

It's about giving 100% and being happy with what you get back.
About praising, and polishing and protecting.

It's not about perfection.

It's about living.  And living widely.


"In the end, everyone ends up at the length of their lives —
but only a few live the whole width of a life."
-Ann Voskamp
