It was the summer of 1984. It was the summer I spent as a cabin girl at Tumbling River Ranch in Colorado. It was the summer I fell in love with the Rocky Mountains.
Tumbling River Ranch was a guest ranch. Families would stay for a week and enjoy activities like horseback riding, white water rafting, and square dancing. My job as a cabin girl was to make beds and clean the cabins, set the tables for dinner. The owner's wife, Mary Dale, was a Christian woman. She told us to find a special spot around the ranch to have daily time with God. I found a spot along the river and I would sit on a rock by the water's edge.
I developed a great appreciation for nature since there are no mountains in Indiana. I also realized that our great God created those mountains.
On Saturday night we had the Hootenanny. All of us college kids on the staff sang songs like, "Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Cowboys," "Put another long on the fire," and "Kinder Blinder."
Most of the songs were funny ones, but "kinder blinder" sneaks out of my memory every once in a while. It is short and sweet:
“Let me be a little kinder,
let me be a little blinder
To the faults of those around me,
let me love a little more.
Let me be when I am weary,
just a little bit more cheery,
Think a little more of others,
and a little less of me.”
Sometimes it’s the smallest things in life that leave the deepest impressions.
