The Circle Of Life
Sorry that I haven't blogged for a few days. We have had a death in the family. Our loved uncle, Hodge, has died. You really don't know what to say on an occasion like this. We all loved him very much. Then, on the same day that he died, a baby calf was born. We weren't expecting this calf at this time. It was a surprise. We thought our bull wasn't old enough to breed yet. I guess we were wrong. ( Youngster these days)
Anyway, it made me think, there is a circle of life. As much as we DON'T want to think about it, we are All going to die. I know this is a morbid subject, but it's natural. If we are trying to live an all natural life, it's one of the things that you have to think about. It's all natural. It's as natural as the little calf being born. Sure we will mourn the passing of loved ones, and we don't want to think about them leaving us, but we all have to do it sooner or later. We should take opportunities like these to reflect on the life of the deceased. Think of the fun times of life, not the sad moment of death. It's natural.
Take times like these to reflect on your own life as well. Is it going in the direction that you want it to? Are you happy? Are there things that you want to do and keep putting them off, saying'"I'll do it later?" You may not have a later. There is a country song that says "Live like you were dieing." How true!!! Now, I'm not saying go and quit your job, or go get a divorce. What I am saying is, enjoy what or who you have now. You never know, you might not have it tomorrow.
Buy the way, I'm going to name the baby calf, Hodge.
I will type some later on....
