Today, my daughter and I went to a local farm and held baby lambs. I sat in the hay. They chewed my shoelaces. I fed them garlic. They smelled my hair. I scratched their bellies.
And for just that one hour, everything felt alright.
Reader, I sometimes think our biggest problems stem from just having too much in our lives, which for me leads to a frustrated mind. As dirty as it was sitting in a barn with animals, I walked away feeling fresh. So with spring approaching in the coming weeks, I'm going to do some mental cleaning, allowing in only what I need. We'll see how long it lasts, but I'm going to do my best to stick with this one. My mind could use a deep clean. There's too much clutter in there lately.
Wishing you a clear head and warm heart. See you next Monday. -Em
