Yesterday while outside enjoying a beautiful Colorado fall day, a beautiful little bird flew to the fence and was as happy with the weather as I was. Now, unless I’m mistaken, this pretty little bird is a woodpecker. As long as this woodpecker does his thing in one of our trees or even on a fence post, that’s fine. But we have a long home. He and I will be having words if I hear the pecking on the house!
We had several kids over yesterday to enjoy the animals we have on the ranch. It’s a great feeling being able to share what we’ve created with others after all the hard work we’ve put into it. I am blessed and thank God for it every night. For others to experience what we have every day, even if only for a couple hours, makes it all worth it. When we see the faces of children running around having a great time gathering eggs, chasing and petting chickens, petting the goats and donkeys, walking the horses, etc., that when we know that yes, it is a special place.
