The temperature was 91; rain was in the forecast. But Hubby and I took the grandkids to the farm anyway. They enjoyed petting and feeding the sheep, goats, and pigs. They rode the ponies, held the chicks, and gazed at huge ostriches and buffaloes. They were mesmerized by the whole experience.
Conversely, I spent most of the time holding my nose—the odor near the cows and other four-legged animals in blistering heat seemed to attack me.
Isn’t life like that? The same surroundings affect us differently. The choice is ours. What are you choosing right now? Are you altered by bad smalls of life, or enjoying the good things that surround you?
