Sunshine makes me better!

   I've seen alot of you in this blogging world write about the weather and how thankful you are for it. Well, I woke up this morning with a snow covered ranch and by lunch time my munchkins were running around with bare feet. We've had 70 degree days this year in March and I couldn't be more thankful for it. My husband on the other hand is mourning over dry ground this time of year, because that means less grass for his cows. We couldn't disagree more.  I try to explain to him that I actually become insulted by his personal complaints, and that my brain needs a sufficient amount of vitamin D in order to parent decently a 4, 2, and 1 year old, but he continues to mourn feed for his cows more. Let's just say that our needs are a little different. Does anyone else out there actually think the sunshine helps make them a better person? (There has to be a Bible verse about it.)  I just wanted to show you a day in the life of a mom that has sunshine for now. My oldest sweet girl got to go on her first ride out on the trails without mom or dad and all of us have soaked up EVERY minute of these beautiful days.  Until the blizzards come again, thank you, Lord, for the sun. 
This was a milestone for me to watch my baby girl hit the trail all by herself.

I found the verse, "And God made two great lights-- the GREATER light to rule the day and the lesser light to rule the night...and He saw that it was good." Genesis 1:16 (See, even the Lord Himself thinks so.)

Yep...without the Vitamin D I can be quite a grump. I suppose that is why I live in Colorado. P.S. Loved, loved, loved seeing you this weekend. XoXo

Honey, I love you, but I'm praying fervently for about 18 inches before the end of May. Cowboys love rain and snow.
