I drove through Green Bay this morning after I dropped off my husband at his semi. Barnes and Noble. Closed. The mall. Closed. Olive Garden. Closed.
I’m sad. I would love to sit down with my mom, sister and niece for lunch at OG and then go to the mall.
I want to touch books in a bookstore. To feel them in my hands.
I want to browse around the mall. I want to see and feel the new canisters I want to buy.
I want to buy cool stuff that touches my heart.
I just want to go shopping with my family.
I admit I was depressed for awhile.
Until on my way home I drove past my cows.
I was so excited. I havent seen my cows since October.
They aren’t my cows. I just call them that. They live about a mile down the road. There are about 100 cows that graze in the field.
I don’t know why but they make me smile everytime I drive by. They lazily roam around chewing their cud. Not a care in the world. No job to go to. No bills to worry about.
My husband thinks I’m crazy, but they make me happy.
Sometimes I even wave to them as I drive by.
They bring me joy.
My sadness disappeared as I gazed at my cows. My heart was happy.
I thought about how summer is on it’s way and 1driving around with the windows down and the tunes cranked. Going to the campground. Wearing shorts, a tee shirt and my flippies.
The cows changed my whole mood today.
As crazy as the world is today we need to find joy in the little things.
Or in 1,200 pound cows.
