Each and every Sunday morning,
after Farm Breakfast,
we gather the week's harvest of eggs for cleaning and packaging...
to be sold to our loyal customers.
Apparently, there is a jokester amongst us!
(Jim and Kathy...our friends and neighbors, I suspect....Thanks for always keeping us on our toes!)
Isn't it amazing how different eggs' appearances can be!
All sizes, shapes, and colors...
and yet underneath it all, they are the same.
No matter the look...
they are still eggs.
Without their shell, you cannot tell one from another.
Not unlike us as humans!
Like eggs, we, too, have an outer shell that can easily be cracked,
exposing our soft, gooey essence.
It's funny how something so simple as eggs can be a reminder
of how we should treat each other.
This simple lesson is one I will carry with me through the holiday preparations...
when faced with crowds, lines, and traffic.
I will try to view each person that I interact with as an egg....
no matter what their exterior...
inside a perfect egg with a fragile shell..
no different from myself.
Happy December, People!
May all your holiday preparations be merry and bright.
And may each of your beautiful shells remain intact as you hustle and bustle...
decorating, shopping, baking, wrapping, partying and more.
I cannot end without sharing a bit of my weekend.
A visit from my favorite buddy...
He had a blast herding guineas
For some reason, he was a little overwhelmed by Ginger and MaryAnn
and headed up to see the goats instead.
Goats: "Got Ritz?"
Tyler: "Nope, my Ritz!"
So many things to learn when you are two....
when you put 10 grapes in a little cup of milk....
something's gotta give.
It's funny how messes don't bother you half as much when you're a grandma!!
