Passion: An intense and strong feeling about an individual or thing. An eagerness, enthusiasm, interest or desire, towards a subject, idea, person, or purpose.
The Rancher and I have a passion for cattle. We ranch and raise cattle that turn into the beef you eat. Our passion is our lifestyle. Everything we do revolves around the ranch. We care for our livestock, often times putting their needs and health as priority over our own. It’s not an easy life, but a life we have chosen. It is a heritage we want to continue.
Growing up I had a passion for showing cattle. A passion I inherited from Mom and Grandpa. An activity I dearly miss.

Miss L has a passion for good desserts and helping in the kitchen. She is her Mother’s shadow.
Sir G has a passion for laughter and smiles. Makes me smile too!

The main female character, Savannah, asked John to take her to meet his Dad. John’s Dad is a passionate coin collector.
Savannah tells John:
“… the saddest people I’ve ever met in life are the ones who don’t care deeply about anything at all. Passion and satisfaction go hand in hand, and without them, any happiness is only temporary, because there’s nothing to make it last. I’d love to hear your dad talk about coins, because that’s when you see a person at his best, and I’ve found that someone else’s happiness is usually infectious.”
What is your passion in life?
