These last few days have been amazing and they have continuously reminded me how wonderful God is. I got in the truck last week and headed to Burlington, Colorado. If you have ever had a doubt in your mind about His existence, get in the truck and go for a drive. Don’t just drive around town, drive somewhere new. Drive out in the country. Drive all day and see where you end up. Drive somewhere and watch the sun set. Take the time to see how beautiful the world actually is. Take some time to go somewhere new, explore, be adventurous. Roll down the windows, let the wind blow through your hair and take some time for yourself.
Burlington, Colorado. A new place that I had never been before. I went to the American National CattleWomen Region IV meeting. While it was a little drive to get there, it was exactly what I needed. When you are on the road for that long, you get time to clear your head and look at all the spectacular things in life. Burlington was a different side of Colorado that I had not seen yet. There were lots of pastures and open spaces and hardly any trees. The weather could not have been more perfect. I was a little worried as there was a rain storm forming but it turned out phenomenal. Being with my CattleWomen is never a disappointment and I continue to look forward to every meeting that I have with them!
If you have never been to Burlington, you have to check out the town. It is a pretty small town but they have a historic carousel there. It was built in 1905 and is a hand carved wooden merry go round. This thing is definitely special! It has quite a few oil paintings and when you walk on it, you can tell that it is hung up on suspension. It also goes around quite a bit faster than the normal carousels that they have now.
Another very interesting thing that you need to visit is the Old Town Museum. This place is stellar! There are a bunch of old style 1900 buildings and you can walk around checking out all the buildings. It is like a small little town! They have a saloon and even a huge barn that people can gather in.
We were also able to visit some feedlots and have some great speakers present to us. The comradery is my favorite thing in these events. Each event I meet more people and gain more friendships. Heck, most of the people to talk to at the meetings live multiple hours away or even states away!
Find something that brings you joy and do it!
As always spread some love, we could all use a little more love.
