Me and My Cowboy

This past weekend I flew to New Mexico to join Mr. Nielson
(along with Boss and Mary) at the annual cattle convention.
The convention is bunch of cowboys/cowgirls (actually its more like a bunch of
cowfamilies learning more about their cattle,
wildlife, land rights, environmental issues that effect them,
 water rights, feed practices, immunizations and medicines for cattle,
and new gear and machinery.
It is actually very interesting, and I really love watching
Mr. Nielson interact with these folks.  These New Mexico cowboys
are so respectful and so charming.
They tip their hat, open doors, pray before eating,
and shake hands with everyone.  
I have to admit I have thought about leaving Fox Hill and moving 
to New Mexico where life slows down and the sky goes on forever.
I would love to rub shoulders with these hardworking men and women.
They are wonderful people.
Since it's Christmastime in Albuquerque, the streets are lined with 
their traditional luminaries.  It's inspiring and beautiful and I wish I would
have taken more photos of downtown.
Saturday afternoon, Mr. Nielson dropped me 
off at the airport and we said our goodbyes.
The cows are calling him back.  He is getting ready to winterize 
the ranch and bring the cows in from the pasture.  He will be home later this week.

Last night I watched the First Presidency's Christmas message.
You can view it HERE.
I am so grateful for the Savior's birth.
I will honor Him by sharing the light of His beautiful gospel with everyone!
That's one of the reasons I spend my Wednesday mornings chatting on-line, 
I want to share the good news with everyone I know!
If you have questions about the Mormon faith; who we are and what we do,
please come and chat with me Wednesdays mornings from
10-noon (MDT)! HERE.
I am proud of my Mormon faith, my Mormon roots,
who I am, and what I believe.
I am sustain and honor our leaders, doctrine, policies and scriptures.
I know I am a happier woman because I let God guide my life,
and I obey His commandments and teachings.  
I am far from perfect, but I can be better because of 
the Savior Jeusus Christ.
