A place for positive thoughts, thank-you's, inspiration ... just pure happiness. In other words, the anti-vent.
I'm so old I remember when parents let their kids play outdoors.In fact mine wouldn't let me sit around the house.
The older I get the less I care what other people think of me. Therefore the older I get the more I enjoy my life.
Farming when you're playing at it and farming when you depend on it for your livelihood are two different things.
Hold those close to you a little tighter. Life can change in the blink of an eye!
If a lot more parents disciplined their kids in Walmart and other public places, the world would be a better place.
Get as much education as you can get,get a job and keep it until you find a better one,don't have kids unless you are married and you probably will not be in poverty.
Lord please give me the will power to lay these cigarettes down. Trying to quit is the hardest thing I have ever attempted to do. I have no succeded yet
Friendship isn't about whom you have known the longest. It's about who came and never left your side.
I was watching the Andy Griffith show the other day. Opie and his friends were riding bikes all over and roaming through the woods. It struck me how today someone might call the police on the parents for letting them be out of sight unsupervised.
Back in the day, kids and dogs were treated the same, thrown out in the morning, allowed back in the house in the evening......
Last year someone posted this and it helped me. Maybe it can help someone else as well. "In 2015, what will you pursue? What will you give? What will you change? Start by putting GOD and Jesus first in your life, and the rest falls peacefully into place! "
The first thing to remember about a horse is that it eats everyday.........whether you ride it or not.
I was able to watch our twin Granddaughters be Baptized on Sunday. It made me feel so good that my son is raising them to believe in the Lord.
My brother has two girls. Each has her own horse. He says that if anyone wants an idea of what it is like to own a horse, get up every morning and burn a $50 bill, then on Sunday, burn a $100 dollar bill. He doesn't smile when he says this.
Our son just left for 2 years in Germany with the Army. I am so grateful that they gave him a long leave before he left but I am going to miss him so much.
Now it's 'free range' just to let your kids walk unattended to school or parks. Sad that we have to have a PC phrase for such a basic thing.
While you are learning about owning a horse, you need to also learn about the necessary vet care and related expenses. This isn't like owning a dog or cat.
I want to thank the nice policeman in Fannin county for unlocking our car yesterday when I left the keys in. We stopped to eat lunch there. I knew the minute I closed the car door that I had forgotten to take the keys. I felt so stupid.
Good luck to the person who is trying to stop smoking. It will be one of the best things you've ever done.
I am grateful that my parents taught me at an early age to do what was right and pay no attention to what anybody thinks about it.
I am 89 years old! Growing up on the farm! We were so poor we had to use butter as a substitute for margarine!
A "bucket list" of things you want to do is fine, but a "bucket full of regrets" for things you put off doing is worse.
The kid in my neighborhood has a jacked-up car, roaring muffler, and loud radio. I'd guess he's somewhere around 40-45 going on 17.
I never did care what anybody thought of me. It's made for a good life and the friends I have are true friends.
Never thought I would like the life of a farmer. Boy was I wrong. I LOVE it. Thank you Jesus for making it possible.
