Scene at a Whitesboro ranch.

– From The Daily Compass:

One of the most beautiful moments of the day comes as the sun goes down, and the light is lost. We know the dark is coming, but for this brief time the sky is at its most glorious.

When have you found beauty in the presence of loss?

I am a courier for MWI Vet Supply. I pick up goods in Grand Prairie and deliver them to vets and ranchers in the Gainesville/Whitesboro area. The last stop on my route brings me almost two hours from home (75 miles). I usually arrive home around seven in the evening. I drive over 250 miles per day. I am utterly exhausted when I get home. Despite all of this, I like the route. The people on it are great. I have gotten to know many ranchers and vets. I see beautiful landscapes and animals. I received word last week that the Granbury route has opened up. I took it. Even though I will dearly miss my Gainesville/Whitesboro customers, I will enjoy the new route more. Granbury is only 45 minutes (40 miles) from home. It will mean less gas, less time on the road, and less time away from my family. This is my silver lining. It is my beauty in the presence of loss. I will lose a great route but I will gain so much more.
