Summer Thoughts

This summer has been hot and dry , but thankfully we did get a little rain last night. It seems that some storms went through last night and did allow us to receive a little bit of rain. However, it needs to rain several days in a row to eliminate the drought conditions that we have. I am sure that a half inch of rain really does nothing for the ground that has lacked rain most of the summer.
 The nice thing about summer for those of us who live in the country is that it allows us to see the work that others have put into their farms as we attend local county fairs. Last night was no different as we attended a very small local fair. Most of the animals and what few projects were exhibited were being taken home or were already gone, but what was there gave us a sense of how much work these kids had done. Also, it was a chance to see friends that we do not see on a normal basis. Also, we had a chance to take in some of the mud bogs (something that many people would not find as a source of entertainment, but country kids do!) and a chance to watch a band that includes several people we know including our neighbor and camp buddy. As I was sitting there, listening to the music and watching people, I was thinking just how simple things can make us happy if we just allow it. We are all so caught up in society and life that we usually forget the small things in life. Take time today to find one small thing that makes you happy!!
