These green days are good days.
These days are for earlier mornings up-and-at-’em, for before-sunrise coffee with my man, starting the day the right way.
These days are for chores in the early light and heading down the driveway with horses loaded on the trailer to help neighbors for a half a day, or however long it takes.
These days are for building and deepening relationships…between spouses, among family, and within the broader community.
These days are for all the growing things, from the calves in the pasture to the flowers in the garden to the wildflowers in the field.
These days are for hours in the saddle. Hours in the dirt. For some bumps and bruises and getting covered in dust and the smoke from the branding iron.
These days are for hard work, good work, wholesome work.
These days are for the sweetness of the fresh air, for the warmth of the sunlight, for the freedom of the open sky.
These days are for crawling into bed wonderfully tired, with muscles you forgot about a little sore and waking up maybe a little more sore.
These days are good days.
