The Best Feelings In the World

Washing alkaline dirt off yourself and out of your hair after trailing cows

Running through the sprinklers on a hot July day.

The way your arms feel after lifting weights.

Discovering an author who is able to make you feel what they feel.

When your leg swings over the saddle, under your rope and your butt hits the seat on a good horse.

Ironed sheets. Pure bliss.

When your timing is just right and you know you’re going to catch two heels beautifully before you even release.

Kneading bread dough.

Falling into bed exhausted, knowing that you can sleep for as long as you want.

Seeing your mom’s freezer full of otter pops when you’re 7 years old and it’s summer time.

The perfect cup of coffee.

Forehead kisses.

The feeling of today….freedom. Knowing that we all of us are here, living the way we want because of other people’s bravery, sacrifice and courage.

THAT cannot be bought and THAT, my friends, is the best feeling in the world.

Happy Fourth of July Dolls!!! We live in an amazing country, for all the faults it has, and we are blessed to live the lives that we do! Go celebrate with someone you love.
