Don't get me wrong: I look forward to big moments, too (especially a wedding coming in 2022 for our family!)

I also appreciate the not-so-monumental times ... like rides to the
pasture to replace the fence charger battery with my favorite farmer and
some pretty scenes from Rattlesnake Creek.
sunrises and sunsets from the Kansas flatlands may not have universal
appeal like those from a mountain-top or from a sandy beach, but they are
still moments to savor.
And they are a reminder to be thankful. I follow The Farmer's Daughter
on Facebook. She has finished a round of chemo for cancer, and I was
struck by the post she shared on her birthday last month:
A Time to Think
Thankfully, the Kansas sunsets provide plenty of free beauty - just for the taking.
The sunset one evening seemed creased by a jet moving through gold-tinged clouds. And I hoped that the passengers were appreciating the view, too.
