The Grass is Greener ~ By Mark Harrison

On our homestead, we have one small pasture and one large pasture.  The calf stays in the small one and the two horses stay in the larger one.  The other day I opened the gate between them and the horses could not wait to get into the calf’s pasture and the calf couldn’t wait to get into the horse’s pasture.  They seemed to think the grass was better on the other side of the fence even though they were actually the same.  I think after a few hours they realized that they were not much better off.  It reminds me of kids when you cut the cake, and everyone eyes up each others piece to see who has the biggest one. Learning that the grass isn’t always greener on the other side is one of life’s important lessons, most of us will never master it completely.

Just for a reminder…

  1. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering what all is needed to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very web smart so I’m not 100% positive. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. Kudos

  2. I was recommended this blog via my cousin. I am now not positive whether or not this submit is written via him as no one else realize such targeted approximately my trouble. You’re incredible! Thank you!
