Back To the Daily Grind


When we got back from vacation, we had green beans ready to be picked. We all headed to the garden and started picking. I was so happy to be back home in our garden. I was looking forward to getting back to our daily routines of life. It was great to get away, but it was even better to come back home! I am so thankful to be able to have something that I enjoy as much as this farm with this family. I remember when Michael was in the Navy and we took leave time to visit our family. We always dreaded going back to the every day grind. We usually spent the entire drive from Kentucky to where ever we happened to live at the time talking about our future after the Navy. It was so good to pull into our drive way and look at our farm and know we were in the exact spot that the Lord had planted us. It just feels...right.
grace and peace,

Momofmanysheep,
Welcome!!!! I am so glad you found us. By the way, I love your name. I smiled because I am a mom of 5 "sheep" and the owner of 19 real sheep. I enjoy both kinds!!
