I Met a Cow Today.

“Some people talk to animals. Not many listen though. That's the problem.” ― A.A. Milne

I met a most beautiful cow on my ride today.

Her eyes were large and soulful, and she was just the most perfect shade of 'caramel'.

And though, at first she tried to feign indifference—still, I could see her peeking up at me through the slats in the fence.

"Oh, you're so beautiful," I called out to her—and just like that, with a little bit of praise, all of those 'fences' were gone.

She moved her snout over for a most careful whiff—checking, I'm sure, to see if any treats had been missed.

I gave her some clover that was just out of reach—and thought to myself what a wonderful treat.

I mean, how lucky is that—that our lives are filled with these most magnificent moments?
