There are so many things that inspire me to be a better person, a better wife, a better mom, a better farmer.
My kids inspire me to be a better mom. They look at me with confidence, urging me to make the best decisions for them.
People are inspiring to me. People who take a stand for their beliefs when no one else will stand with them. People with passion for life. I think about a chef, stroking a piece of meat, inspired to turn the raw product into a masterpiece.
A musician plucks away at keys or strings until a beautiful melody breaks forth into a song.
A gardener tills the land and plants those teeny tiny seeds, waiting patiently for the green to show.
Have you ever noticed how the little things in life sometimes make the most difference?
Remember the old saying, “Take time to stop and smell the roses.” When was the last time we stopped the busyness of life to look at the little things?
- A child’s laugh
- The color blue
- A cow’s moo
- A babbling brook
- Words on a page
- A hug from a friend
- A note of encouragement
- A smile
- Birds’ songs
- A crackling fire
