Life just passes us by if we let it. I once had a conversation with a woman from Holland who said to me, "you Americans live to work...we work to live." That has always stuck with me and sometimes I think it is so true. I think the answer is somewhere in between because we have to work to make a living, but work doesn't have to be the focus of our lives. The older I get, the more I realize that balance in life is SO important.
Yesterday my husband and I took a new road in our area that leads to a new school. The road has just recently opened and is not completely finished. So we turned around and on the way back discovered a wonderul old stone building with a windmill. It had just rained and I didnt' have my camera with me, but I thought about in all night. This morning I put on some hiking boots and drove back. I was determined to get a picture of the old building and windmill. I was so glad I did. It was like major eye-candy. The kind that makes your heart stop! As I began shooting, there were three cows that came down another road curious to see who I was. Our eyes met and we just stared at one another. Shoot with your camera! I think they were waiting for me to take their picture! They didn't move until a few minutes after. The little one just stole my heart. I have several pictures from this morning, but I am totally in love with these guys. It will be a picture in my mind and on my heart all week.
