The Moral of the Story

Coming Home after a long day I found this little visitor on the handrail by the steps to our door. It was a cheerful little reminder that life really is wonderful and God does love me, in spite of myself.

It was just a long hard day, one of the ones I'd almost rather not discuss (which always means my cowboy and I had a 'falling out'). The moral of that story is don't try working cows if you don't have enough time; the only thing that happens is every one gets grumpy and nothing good ever gets accomplished.

A lovely reminder that even if we can't make every day a good day, grumpy and tired can still be dissolved by a little bit of beauty. It's always there, but we have to look outward, not inward, to see it. Hope today goes better for you both!

Hope you both got it (get it) smoothed out okay.
Here's to a better week! ♥

Oh I hear ya on that one. Nothing should ever try to get done in a hurry, it never seems to work out.

sadly enough, your advice is very true about working cattle! My soon to be step-daughter would love this picture. She LOVES butterflies!

A lovely reminder that there is beauty everywhere.And a nice gentle reminder as you say of God's love.
I have learned as you have that "if you are in a hurry ,hurry home cause you are done" is a pretty good rule of thumb with animals. It is going to take the time it takes and rushing doesn't ever make it work out better. Taht said , we still all do it by times and are reminded how bad an idea it really is. Hope you have a better day!
