Thankfulness on the Homestead


Faithful HomesteaderWhen I look around at all the pain and suffering in the world, I want to cling closely to the people and things that I hold so dear. I really do strive to live a life of thankfulness. I know all could be lost so easily. This year when my mom lost her house in a fire, it was a close reminder of how quickly life can change.

Our crazy chicks.

We live a simple lifestyle on our little homestead. I am so thankful for all of our critters. We have two pet chickens and a cat. All three provide wonderful entertainment and therapy. We also have three fish in a pond and a variety of birds that visit our yard. All of these add such a wonderful component to our life on the homestead.

I am thankful for my husband and his many talents. He has a green thumb and it is always interesting to see how our garden does. He likes to try different things and grow at least one new thing every season. I really love when we have an abundance that we can share with our friends and family.

Since we moved to our little homestead and ended up with chickens, I started sharing about our girls on my Facebook page. I was surprised by all the interest from my family and friends. It opened up a whole new world. I started blogging about life on the homestead and started a Facebook fan page. I am thankful for all the new people that I have connected with on this homesteading journey. I have met so many encouraging people and it is interesting to see what is going on with other homesteaders.

Faithful Homesteader, I too am thankful for the many things that I have. Mostly I'm thankful for family, friends, and neighbors. Being on the down hill side of life I am truly thankful for health and strength to be able to still garden and help others. ***** Have a great Thanksgiving day.
