Chapter 3

My Instagram feed is full of baby goats. Facebook = even more cute goat pictures. Open Pinterest and there’s sweet baby goats running around everywhere. It makes me REALLY want goats and it’s the same way at the feed store with the baby chicks and ducks. 

Then I remember we have sweet baby calves and this sweet this little face makes me smile, as well.

Somehow all this makes me realize sometimes we need to stop the comparison game. Oftentimes we see what others have and want that or become jealous and don’t realize we already have something good going on. Sometimes we walk in on their chapter 42, while we are only writing chapter 3 of our own story...

It doesn’t have to just be about baby goats. It may be houses, clothes, vehicles, jobs, etc. Maybe our highlight reel isn’t as fancy, but it’s just as special. It’s ours and we need to find peace and happiness in the place we are in now. Be proud of the book you are writing and the journey you are on. Maybe I’ll have goats in chapter 42, or maybe not. We have to see how the story develops. 

Honestly, I know nothing about caring for goats other than I know we don't have the proper fences or facilities to care for them, so we would have to learn and build, before we could bring home goats. Growing up, we did have one billy goat named Fred and he wasn't cute. He was mean and we couldn't catch him for years. You definitely would not have got an Instagram worthy picture with Fred... 

So y’all keep posting those cute baby animal pics for me and I’ll keep sharing my baby calves for you and lets all enjoy the chapter that we are currently on. Deal?
