I'm thankful for my strong willed, and determined personality. As a stay at home, home schooling, farming mom of four kiddos and one husband I've had to be. It's not easy jobs that we have chosen to live, but I love it! I've never been the kind of gal to sit back and watch someone else do it for me. I like to be right in the thick of it. I love getting dirty and sweaty and dirt under my fingernails, and stepped on and pushed around by the critters, getting hay splinters and driving the tractor! Ah what a life a farmer lives. OK so not so much the hay splinters, but you get the picture! The joys and sorrows together of farming. The invaluable life skills that we are all gaining in getting back to the land, so to speak. Reclaiming what has been taken away from us by big box companies and huge scale lot feeding. Some of which we willing just gave up all in the name of something called "progress." Bring back the generation of family farmers. I say stick it to the big guys and support small, local farmer all the way!
Have a great day all!
