A Cowgal's Story: New Year, New You!

New Year, New You!

Tonight on the ride home from town, I looked out at the fading colors in the winter sky.

The blue seemed to blend in quiet perfection to the pink of the sunset, and then into the white wispy clouds.

The silouettes of the trees, dark starkness in contrast to the colors, created a pretty picture to my eye.

I wonder sometimes how many of us take the simple things for granted?

Is your life so full of rush, me first, instant gratification, that you miss the hawk sitting in the top of the dead pine, looking down at you?

What about that first green blade of grass growing next to that big old rock along the path?

It's a new year, a time for new beginnings. Maybe this will be the year when you decide to slow down and realize it's time to enjoy the journey on the way to your destination . . .
