Some days I get a bit overwhelmed with the amount of work that it takes to keep a farm going. I am having to change the way I view these tasks to keep my sunny outlook. In the past, I would work until the work was done, and then I would play. If I took this same approach with the farm, I would never play. The list never gets completed....for as soon as a portion of the tasks are done, more tasks are added. I must admit, that most of the work around the farm is fun...that is if the weather is cooperative. So, in order to keep from getting gobbled up by the work monster, I am going to make a "short" list for each day....knowing that the long list is a fact of life and will never go away. Let's call it job security....or opportunity, if you will!
This plaque hangs inside our back entrance. I look at it each day as I head out (multiple times) to do chores.....in my overalls!
