Week 52

The road ahead and the road behind stretch in a line; one direction a dream and the other a memory.  Right NOW is where we try to live, one step at a time. 

It's been a good year.  I haven't enjoyed doing the weekly blog posts because it took what was a fun, creative pursuit to a diary style chore.  Won't do that again, but I will keep posting now and again about our life on the land.  It's a good life, full of beauty and truth and authentic living as well as quite a few piles of poop.    We are very grateful for all of it and we thank our faithful for following along.   Bertha and Dan and Bill and Juanita, thank you for your feedback.  We thank our neighbors too who come up to us and are appreciative to have a connection to the ranch across the creek. 

The hogs are huge and expecting to farrow in April.  The cattle are happy chewing their cuds on our sunny, green, prairies this week.  One of our kitties found a new home and the horses are enjoying living large and running free.  Acres spread out around us for exploring.   Life is Good. 

We wish you enough.

I wish you enough sun to keep your attitude bright no matter how gray the day may appear.
I wish you enough rain to appreciate the sun even more.
I wish you enough happiness to keep your spirit alive and everlasting.
I wish you enough pain so that even the smallest of joys in life may appear bigger.
I wish you enough gain to satisfy your wanting.
I wish you enough loss to appreciate all that you possess.
I wish you enough hellos to get you through the final good-bye.
