Sitting on our back porch here in the high mountains of Colorado, a gentle breeze kicked up bringing closer the sweet tunes of an old favorite Zac Brown Band melody…
“I got my toes in the water, ass in the sand
Not a worry in the world, a cold beer in my hand
Life is good today Life is good today”
And as we rocked and forth gazing out to the endless horizon, minds sweetly drifting far away and reflecting on the good moment, it occurred to me that life really ain’t gotta be complicated at-tall (that’s “at all” in Southern…). Goodness, why would you ever want to complicate it?
Yup, there’s great wisdom to be learned from those who live this simple lesson. We can choose to be crazy-busy bees and never see just how quickly the sand drains down the hourglass … or, look for easy ways to slow things down a spell.
Whether it’s a slow hike up into the mountains or an easy walk along a pretty beach, the people you find there are likely thinking along the same lines as you.
Oh, is that Alan Jackson with another great song winding its way to us…
“Two old people, without a thing
Children gone but still they sing
Side by side on that front porch swing
Living on love“
Soon, though not soon enough, we’d be sitting on our favorite front porch with old friends who’d learned this lesson long before we ever did. Better late than never… and life is good … no, make that: life is great.
