I usually try to go with each day and not let frustration or annoyance creep in. Once in a great while, however, I have one of those days. Monday was one of those days and I had a hard time shaking it off. But I tried. This little video of my horse, Cooper, helps calm my mind. I am sure we all need a breather once in a while. My animals are a great source of peace for me. One of my favorite sounds is that of a horse eating. It's hard to explain if you're not a horse person. If you are, you know what I mean. It is peaceful. It is relaxing. Standing with my horse quiets my mind.
My home is a great source of peace for me. Without question, my sweetheart is a great source of peace for me. So many things make my life full and I know I've been fortunate. I still think about the people whose lives have been devastated. I'm sure they all had days just like I have had. And I am sure they would give almost anything to have those days back. And their homes and their sense of peace.
My hope for those people is they once again - and very soon - find a comfortable place to relax.
