welcome november

I am so glad to flip the calender to a new month. I went out to do chores this morning as my husband left early to head over to the mill and finish up an order of bee hive covers. I ran back in the house and grabbed my camera and snapped this

what a beautiful sunrise to greet me this morning and make the day seem that much brighter for me! A new month, a new day.

 I'm so thankful for the beauty around me and the opportunity to live in the country.
I'm thankful for our farm that we have been blessed with in ways that some people would think strange in how we came to farming, but looking back over the years I can see God's handiwork in changing my heart and my husbands.
I'm thankful for the cool, crisp, morning I woke up to, the nickering of my horses as I went outside, and the cow hurrying down the lane to greet me and banging her head on the door because I took too long to get her door opened.
I'm thankful to all the troops here and over seas away from their families. Defending us and protecting our freedoms and running to the danger when most run the other way.
Have a great day all!
