My kiddos laugh, when my wife is blow drying her hair. Sobriety. A close gobble in a Georgia bottom full of mature hardwoods on a crisp morning , hearing a buck dogging a doe in the same bottom when the leaves have dropped. Ducks circling the deeks.

The smell of good coffee while sitting on the front porch watching the sun rise while deer move through the area.

Funny how it seems like I need to re-boost this thread in mid summer.

I love.....

The love of my God.
The love of my wife
The hugs I get from my children
The laugh of a child
Texas sun rises and sun sets.
The sound of locust, whippoorwills and bob whites.
The smell of fresh cut grass or hay patch.
The taste of a cold beer after a long hot day.
The smell of leather
The site of a deer coming into my set up.
Seeing my children succeed in life
The good people of TBH even though I have met very few of yíall.
This great state of Texas and this country I call home.
Old pick up trucks

The smell of the countryside. It varies according to the time of year and temperature. Sometimes there are blooms of trees and sometimes it’s flowers or shrubbery that enhances it. If you’re in a hurry and pressured by other things in life, you might not notice these pleasant smells. It doesn’t cost you much to breathe it in and appreciate the small things.

I’m blessed to be able to work in an environment where it’s very peaceful. Yes, we work our butts off doing ranch and farm work. There are no neighborhoods here. No traffic noise. No blend of radios thumping. No sea of rooftops and driveways. No nosy neighbors. No Homeowners Associations.
Just peace and quiet. Peace & Quiet.

I love many of the things above, but I love the fact that our 18 year old still tells us he loves us EVERY time he walks out the door or hangs up the phone. He's off to college in two weeks and I made sure he knows how special it is to his mom and I.

When my kids said I love daddy.
When I can make my wife smile or laugh.
The way her eyes look when she it mad ( bitter sweet lol )
When you hear the thawck and see the blood spray then the drop within sight.
The woods when they come alive in the morning.
The lake when it looks like glass in the morning and evening.
That first sip of coffee in the morning.
The smell of fresh cut grass.
Naps more and more!!!

Sitting at a movie theater in the A/C during the summertime and you reach over beside you and hold hands with a pretty gal that you care a lot about. Makes a grown man feel like a teenager all over again. Who cares whatís playing on the movie screen right then. Just being with her is all that matters.

The sound of teal as they buzz around before you can really see. Sounds like little fighter jets whipping around.

A campfire with al the lights out at the ranch after everyone has gone to bed.

When a plan comes together how you actually planned it to. (Only has happened a handful of times, but **** it feels good)

I used to love getting on stand, late October, in the early afternoon while still kinda warm.

About 3:45pm seemed like a little breeze would kick up signaling the coming eve.

The anticipation would sit in and surveying the landscape revealed all kinds of things.

First Love this thread. This should be a sticky.

I love coaching little league and seeing the boys progress through the season. Especially those who werenít so good at the beginning but at the end of the year they are good players.

I love watching my son pitch from the mound. This year at the age of 10 he had a 3 hit game and a game where he only walked one batter.

I love the way my wife laughs at my dumb *****. Her smile makes me feel all warm inside, even after 15 years of marriage.

I love watching God as the sun comes up and Iím standing waste deep in the bay. I usually will stop fishing and just enjoy His grace for a few minutes.

Here we go again, bring up the happy memories, the memories you can smell, dream and feel.

I still love puppy kisses and I laugh when they get the "zoomies". Life is so much fun for them.

I love America and everything she represents, in spite of or because of her faults she is always striving toward a better union. I watch my flag waving in my avatar, which fyi - has been the waving flag since I joined TBH in 2004.

Texas, because she represents courage, strength, determination, grit. I seem to see myself sit up a little taller and huff up my chest, proud to be a part of this great state.

Any time spent with our kiddos and their families. My grandkids asking for Nana’s homemade chocolate pie. Hugs from my grown sons, and when they all go home, quiet time with my husband and spoiled rotten mini schnauzer. First morning lite while sitting in deer blind, the sound of the woods waking up. That’s my time.

I love fried okra, road trips, and being outdoors. I love gorgeous shoes that add 3” to my height almost as much as I love my worn, old Chips. I love the smell of a tack room and the way horses smell, too.

I’ve always appreciated the way a man looks in his Wranglers, and I have a fetish about that certain way they stack on top of his boots. I also love the smell of basil and wood smoke.

I love the way my husband feels when I hug him and I can still remember the way each of my children felt when I held them as babies, and I’m sure I’ll cherish those feelings until the day I die.

I love cattle herds that are docile and you can tag and weigh freshly newborn calves without having to worry about the mamas attacking you.

Out of that same herd was a heifer who adopted me. She evidently sensed my love for animals and knew I was trustworthy. I’d be out checking on the cattle in other pastures where that same heifer had access. The cattle would knock the chains loose that held the double gates closed to a yard at an old house that nobody lived in. I walked in the yard to see which cattle were hanging out there together. On the back of my right leg I felt a gentle touch. Turned around and it was that same heifer that I had a special bond with. She wanted my attention. If you love animals you’ll understand what I’m describing. That heifer would love on me like a puppy dog. Never seen anything like her before or since.

I love my family. I am so incredibly blessed to have somehow been able to talk M.C. into marrying me. She's perfect for me. And she's hot. That doesn't hurt.

And she gave me two AWESOME kids. Both are now grown, educated, married, and gainfully employed by someone other than me. THAT is awesome. Their spouses are wonderful additions to our family, and THAT is awesome too.

M.C. and I are blessed to still have our parents. They're all great parents and grandparents. It's not always fun watching them get older, but it sure is a blessing to have them. Our sisters and their husbands and kids and the rest of our extended families are all blessings to us as well, notwithstanding a couple black sheep here and there in the family trees. But what are you gonna do?

We are blessed to have some really good friends as well. We have a lot of friends. We have a handful of really GOOD and CLOSE friends. What a blessing to share life with them.

And we're blessed far beyond what we deserve materially. Great careers working with people we love dearly.

All of the above makes for a big net positive life, even when all of the difficulties, stresses, and tragedies come along. There's no escaping those. But life is good. Praise God for His mercy, grace, and blessings.

The way she looks in that black dress, and the way she still looks without it.

The way all my girls still hug me so tight, even though theyíre all grown.

That she still canít sleep unless her feet are touching me.

Taking my toddler grandson for a haircut.

Swimming with the grandkids.

Being in the woods alone.

That's a great post Shane! Doing it right brother!
I saw a study once that said out of 500 people they studied and interviewed, of the ones that were truly happy in their life, they all had one trait in common. It was gratitude. They were thankful and felt blessed. Sounds like your in that group.
