This summer has been very long, hot, and humid. At the end of another week of heat advisories for our area, another week of non-stop work, another week of a few set backs, we sometimes wonder why we keep doing what we do here on the farm. I understand that this way of life is not for everyone.(I really understand). It is hard work. It is the life my husband and I choose and at the moment I wouldn’t trade it for anything else.

Here are a few of the reasons why:

Have you ever…

Been so thankful for life that you thought you would burst?

Loved a goat…

Or two?

Have you ever…

Dried your clothes in fresh air and sunshine?

Built a boat?

Smelled fresh cut hay?

Skinny dipped in a pond with your husband in the moonlight?

Kissed a chicken?

Just watched a cow graze?

Have you ever…

Built a rock bridge from rocks on the farm?

And a water wheel?

Made a bale of pine straw?

Seen a snake in a tree?

Have you ever…

Been a young family and built your own home? together? three times? never worried about a mortgage? never … ever?

Worked the soil, grew, and preserved enough fruits and vegetables for a year?

Have you ever… been so thankful for life you thought you would burst?

Oh yes, I remember now!

Just a few reasons why we keep doing it all over and over again.

What are you thankful for this week?
