Love of the Rancher Kind

1.  You know that a Rancher loves you when you’re sitting in the passenger seat and they asks you if you’d like to get the gate instead of just assuming you will.
2.  You know that a Rancher loves you when they are willing to give you the best horse on the place to make sure you’re comfortable.  And yet you argue and ride the younger, more spunky one.
3. You know that a Rancher loves you when they comes home from being filthy dirty and remembers to take their coveralls, pants and boots off in the entryway.
4. You know that a Rancher loves you when they comes home with a bouquet of hand tied wildflowers (including the crops *sunflowers and wheat here* instead of store-bought flowers hand-tied.
5.  You know that a Rancher loves you when they take the kids out to help with livestock chores (even though it is way more work for them) just to give you 30 minutes of peace and quiet, of which you instead clean the house.
6.  You know that a Rancher loves you when you only have to do the night checks every other night!
7.   You know that a Rancher loves you when they buy you a brand new spotlight for Valentine’s Day and calving is less than 10 days away (and you are excited about it).
8.  You know that a Ranch loves you when….oh hell you have a ring on your finger and you both have made it this far!  Give your love a big hug and kiss and go check those heifers!!!
Happy Valentine’s Day from one RancHer to another!

Its 2015!

Resolutions, Resolutions, Resolutions!  I don’t even want to hear about it,  lets be true to ourselves this year and not make these so-called “resolutions” that we pretend we will do our best to uphold and last about 2 weeks to maybe 2 months but rarely do we make it a full year with the normal resolutions – save money, lose weight, eat better, be healthier. . . . . . . . .

So For this year, Here are things that I will work everyday toward and how I will be making them part of my everyday life.

1.  Live Happier – Smile more, remember the small things,  laugh at that spilled milk,  it is NOT the end of the world.

2.  Cherish those that I love – EVERY DAY, not just on a birthday, valentine’s day or special occasion.  I will show my love to my family and friends and not just say it.

3.  Money – well we all need it, some have none, some have a lot, but I will give what I can in 2015.  I am standing by the rule pay your bills, save a little, give a little.   This past year has taught our family so much including giving from the heart.   (oh and I swear this year I’m setting up a Savings Pickle jar – – – NOT with the sheet of paper where you save $1 for week 1…$2 for week 2…etc.  – – – ours will be a simple $20 each week that goes into the jar, I would love to put it right into the bank but I think the kids need to see a visual at their age),  1/2 will be used for the kid’s savings accounts and the other will be used to teach my children the importance of giving.

And thats is folks.   Live simply, Love Endlessly, Give from Your Heart.

HAPPY 2015!
