Comments of a Country Woman
Last week, I went fishing with my husband. We usually don’t go too far from home because in this county there are plenty of good fishing streams within a few minutes drive. We take along a lunch just for the fun of it, nothing fancy. Eating lunch beside a clear sparkling mountain stream and listening to the sound of the running water is a great pleasure and privilege.
While my husband catches the fish, I walk along the stream and enjoy the scenery, such as the trees still in their dark winter coats but brightened here and there with evergreens.
Some plants and grasses are making their appearance now; mixed in these are some beautiful violets and other little blue and white flowers. Also many birds are back from the south and I love to watch their busy comings and goings as they select just the right site for their nests and prepare them for their future families. Sometimes I have the extra special treat of seeing a deer or pheasant or maybe a wild turkey.
When I think of the thousands of people in the cities of the United States who are dreaming of spending just a few days’ vacation in such beautiful surroundings as we have right here, I know how fortunate I am to be living in this beautiful county.
