Peace: Now There's a Label I Can Embrace

I don't usually like labels. Even when reading Kinley a favorite book, I cringe a little when the little dog identifies "fat, thin, short and tall" as some of the words he knows.

But, sometimes, the labels just fit.
Peace Creek? Yes indeed.
I zoomed over the bridge on 4th Street near our home at 55 MPH. (Really, officer.) And I noticed the yellow wildflowers dressed for fall and nestled against the meandering creek banks.
So I went back the next day for a longer look.
Sometimes, it pays to slow down.
However, there's no slowing down scheduled for some weeks in life, and this is one of those. After a weekend of helping to wrangle 21-month-old and 20-month-old flower girls, it's a week packed full to the brim. (There will definitely be more of Kinley's and Hannah's debut as flower girls, but here's a quick preview. Such a fun weekend!)

This morning, I have to pick up Randy at Miller Seed Farms at 8 AM. I have a noon meeting in Pratt for South Central Community Foundation. I have oodles to do before I serve a noon PEO luncheon tomorrow. And I have to take Randy back to Miller Seed Farms to pick up the truck filled with seed wheat. There will probably be some other trips to the field thrown into the mix for good measure.

Whew! I will try to keep "Peace" in my mind, even in the craziness.


  1. Thanks for sharing a little bit of Peace Creek with us, Kim. A great way to start the week.

    Good Luck with the busy week ahead of you and with wheat planting.

    1. Thanks, Robyn! I am going to need a little luck with week, I think, since I already feel tired and it's only mid-morning!

    2. What a great word to start the week - peace! Sounds like you'll be needing a lot of deep breaths & peace this week. We understand the craziness as we prepare for our annual trek to Oktoberfest. This time is a little crazier since we are bringing our grandsons.

      Wishing you & Randy luck & peace for this crazy week.

    3. Thanks, Debora! It was a sermon to myself this AM, I think! Maybe we'll see you at Oktoberfest. Jill, Eric & Kinley are coming, too, so it should be fun!
