This slow, intentional move has always been part of our plan. We would work towards full time farming and then step into a life that allowed me to be the wife, mother, friend, farmer and community worker I yearn to be. To find balance. Even when we were without sleep and stressed there were words spoken about this time-hope.
To have been given the vision and handed everything without all of the work would have surely left us with much more pride, idleness and extravagance than anyone ought to have. So I sit here at this kitchen table, and walk the fields, sit and listen (really listen) to my kids, read good books and pray-thankful for what I've been through and realistic of where I am. Learning to be who I want to be.
We'd love for you to write us. I cannot think of any better treat then to find you in our mailbox.
