I sat in our kitchen one early morning, rocking, reading and reflecting; getting ready to enjoy the day. The window was open and I heard geese honking. They congregate around a pond surrounded by a huge grain field. They evidently wake up honking because I hear them so often.
Listening to their early morning fun, I thought about how the goslings born this spring will in a few months fly further south for the winter. And wondered how they know to do that. They don't have the Weather Channel app to know when the first blast of Artic air resident in a low-pressure system comes sweeping down from Canada. They don't watch a local TV station and get the latest report from Doppler weather radar or catch weather on the ten's on a local radio station. I suppose you could say they just follow the rest of the birds, but still...
...these geese have within them the desire to fly south and then north again and the knowledge for when and where. So if the geese are taken care of like this, how much more good stuff of life can you receive if you just look for it?
Lots, right? So Live Positive and make a life worth living today knowing you're taken care of better than geese.
