We took Mikayla and her pony Cherie over to play with some cows this morning. Heat and helmets were on my side and after awhile she looked at me, beet-red in the face and said, “Hey dad, ya want a turn?”
I don’t have much experience with cows, but Cherie has plenty. The time today made me so aware of “getting in the way”. I can’t tell you what happened, its just a feeling that was there. The awareness was only in the rear-view mirror, so there wasn’t much I could do. But the awareness was there; if somehow I could get better at stepping out of her way that things could be better.
Makes me wonder how many other things in life might be similar.
