Recently asked what are some of the things I treasure, it was easy to answer.
I treasure being with my family and watching how well my kids get along. They communicate fairly well. They smile. They laugh. The love and acceptance is present. My heart swells at these times. And their children get along pretty well, too. Oh, don’t think they’re perfect … that is far from true and they all have distinct personalities, but for the most part, it is accurate.
I treasure waking up in the mornings and sitting down to enjoy a cup of coffee. That makes me happy because I know my world is really good when I have time to do this.
I treasure meeting new people and seeing new places for many years, but more and more it is my coffee and a good book at home. I love books. I love a stimulating conversation at the table. Not people telling me their opinions and trying to change mine, but the sharing of interesting information.
I treasure the Farmer’s Market for bringing people who are happy and smiling together weekend after weekend. Then when you add the contests like the Dog Parade it just makes me laugh and enjoy. The Baby Contest was fun to see so many people proud and happy. The Salsa Contest is fun and the Art Walk makes me appreciate the talent and work some folks have and do.
What do you treasure? What moments do you hope to hold in your mind for the rest of your life because they are so comforting and interesting to you?
What makes you happy?
Being around people who make laugh makes me happy.
Going to the beautiful Oslo Lutheran Church and seeing my family there makes me happy.
Having a job that is ever – changing and community – oriented, I love. And I get to meet some really great, giving people.
I love my life. It isn’t perfect. It isn’t the way I planned for it to be, but I love it.
And I love the Guymon Fiesta. The food and fun, the feeling of being somewhere other than Oklahoma abounds. I love it.
I hope that I’ll see you there enjoying it on Sunday afternoon and evening, too.
Catch you on the bricks!
