A Good Feeling 21 August 2014

 A double rainbow last night!

A double rainbow last night!

I made a list a while back of things that make me feel good:

The smell of coffee brewing in the morning, afternoon or evening, horses neighing, starting my tractor, tractor drives, riding Indian, riding any horse, hugs, kisses and sharing joy, hearing and saying, “I love you,” taking a hot shower, running, getting my to-do list done, cooking a good meal, going out to eat, really good dessert, getting a letter in the mail, reading a good book, popcorn and movie night, talking a walk with Robert, seeing the sun rise and set,

Pre-dawn this morning.

Pre-dawn this morning.

watching the moon, stars and planets, chocolate cake that is moist and piled with loads of chocolate frosting, grooming Indian, time with friends, making someone’s day lighter, riding along in the pick-up with Robert, fixing fence, tamping, seeing our kids happy, healthy and productive, time with family, shooting and hunting, camping, playing guitar and singing, getting lost in writing, curling up with hot chocolate and marshmallows, watching snow fall, having a whole day to do whatever I want, homemade ice-cream right off the dasher, cotton candy and peanuts in the shell at a baseball game or the circus, broadway musicals, running in new running shoes the first time, dinner in the crock pot after a long day, fresh flowers, reading the Psalms, feeding cattle at dawn, bread baking, planting a garden and harvesting, farming and anything that requires running a tractor, dipping chocolate covered biscotti in hot coffee, putting money in my savings account, and anything that makes me feel alive!
