On Saturday Willem and I went out to the farm and went for a walk and a drive.  The man is like a Klipspringer on the rocks.  He knows every bush and outcrop like the back of his hand.  We sat there just admiring the view from a koppie and he told me about how as a child, growing up there, his job was to go out and collect the lambs in the mountains.  He ran across those mountains every day and he got to know them well.  How many people do you know had that privilege growing up.  I compare that life style and mine growing up on a farm to that of kids today growing up in front of  televisions and computers.  How blessed we were.
