An honest days work will make you appreciate the little rewards in life.  I remember riding horses all day as a kid, and being so tired I couldn't hardly walk.  I have my father to thank for teaching me how to work, and making me finish my work for the day no matter how tired I was.  I now know that he did that for me not to punish me, but to ensure that I would be a successful adult.  School taught me how to learn, but I have my parents to thank for teaching me to work for my dreams, and appreciate what I have in life.  I have worked hard for each and every thing in my life.  I wouldn't have it any other way.

I think that over time people grow in different directions, and friendships fade for better or for worse.  One might say well it is never better to lose a friend, but it seems that often times friends get to the point where they have grown apart in so many ways. It becomes more of a chore to be friends rather than something that they enjoy.  It isn't so much that the person is no longer claimed as a friend, but the need to stay in touch is lost because lack of interest in what one or the other is doing is gone, or absent.  I feel like friendships in today's world are based on what you have or what you should have rather than who people really are.

Opportunity is knocking...or is it?

It is so easy to always think that the grass is greener on the other side.  I had the opportunity to take a job with a company where I would work 8:00 to 5:00, five days a week, and be in a controlled environment all day.  Sounds like the dream job right? Wrong.  I would of had to move to Canada, and start my life completely over.  Instead, I decided that my life in good ole Yuma, Colorado, may be where the grass grows Green. When taking into consideration another opportunity in life, we often are caught in the moment of how bad things must be where we currently are.  We often forget how good we really have it.
