I stood there for a long time, touching and looking at the skeins, and thinking about all those lambs I have raised. As a city girl, years ago, whose parents didn't allow pets in our home, I could not have dreamed in my wildest imaginations that I would end up living the life I have now. I know how fortunate I am and I try not to take a single day of this life for granted. Though I have been known to complain about the constant work (especially if it happens to be over 90 degrees!), I'm grateful to be where I am, doing what I do. One month from today, I will reach a milestone birthday. It's a sobering one, to be sure. I am no longer able to deny the fact that I have a lot less time ahead of me than I do behind me. I intend to use the occasion as a reminder to get on with my life and to enjoy all that life brings me.
So, that was not where I was headed when I began this post, but, as so often happens with me, I start out in one direction and end up somewhere completely different.
The weekend is before us and I hope it's a great one for all of you!
