I live on a small farm of 52 acers. I live with animals both domesticated and wild, with plants, with flowers, with a garden. I walk on the land every day and never get bored. There is always something new to see and learn. In the summer, I sit on my back porch, which overlooks the barn and pasture; I can see the horses, goats, chickens, and sometime deer. There are humming birds that come to the bird feeder that my husband Stace puts out for them.
I have a responsibility for everything on this land; you might call me the care taker of all our farm animals and land. Yes, it is a lot of hard work but, I would not change it for the world. Every day presents its self with something new and unpredictable. There is no denying the fact that our life is an adventure here on the farm. No two days are ever the same. It’s constantly changing, I’m constantly learning. I am finding out things about myself I didn’t know…. Like I CAN learn patience and I had no idea how strong I could be until I needed to be.
You become very good at just going with the flow… Like I said earlier, farm life is unpredictable. You never know when a farm animal or something breaks will suddenly decide that “insert farm task here” is IMPERATIVE to get done when you had plans to spend the day together… Or go on a date… Or just cooked a fantastic Sunday meal… Whatever the situation may be, just let it go. Go with the flow. It’s not worth the energy to get your panties in a bunch over trivial things.
You appreciate Mother Nature in ways you’d never thought possible. You will get to experience farming on such an intimate level. You will learn so much about how it all works. Every single day, you are bound to learn something new in the farm world. It’s amazing. After growing up on a farm and having a farm now, I still marvel at how Mother Nature works.
Truth is… I love my farming life and I love my husband like I never thought possible. He’s my rock, he sets my soul on fire, and he may make me pull my hair out from time to time… But, I love that man. Like I’ve never loved anybody else. I look forward to the adventures that lay ahead of us. And here’s to that new chapter!
Hope you have a nice day!
I’m here for you!
