I am happy that I have stuck with this for so many years.
It's just a part of my daily routine.
There are days when I have a story to share, and days filled with little moments.
At the end of every day when I sit down to write my thoughts,
I look through the day's images and am reminded of just how lucky I am to be surrounded, each day,
by so much of what I love.
Writing makes me appreciate the small moments that make up each day.
So, you see, it is as much for me as it is for you.
Having you to share this journey makes it all the sweeter, though.
The beauty of life was meant to be shared.
Love is meant to be shared.
In the past I have heard critical words about writing a blog that is filled with "sunshine and rainbows"....
that this is somehow not "realistic".
From my perspective, we are bombarded each day with the reality that is life...
to an extent beyond what we are equipped to handle.
It's no wonder there is so much depression and anger in this world.
I live a real life...with ups and downs just like anyone.
But, I choose to make this blog a force of positivity and love in a world that desperately needs it.
I wish for this place to be a brief respite from the sadness in the world.
I need a promise from you, though....
If I become boring, repetitive, etc... you will let me know
and I will retire my keyboard.
Otherwise, there are many things that I would forget. And, a lot of them I don't want to.
I love seeing pictures of your animals. You are a good photographer. Thanks for sharing your life, home and cute critters.
Homemade marshmallows? OMGosh, you are too much! ;0D
Love it, many thanks! You will never know how much your cheer helps.
I salute you and your blog!!!!!!!!!!! Karla from Coal City, IL
When I saw those animal pictures, I actually got tears in my eyes and thanked God for creating those precious, funny looking, loving, hairy faces for us to enjoy.

Doom and gloom surrounds us . . .
I like my focus on the "little bright spots" in my life . . .
so as to keep some balance with what is happening in the wider world.
Visit with you and the farm family bring me your "bright spots!"
I love it . . . please stay . . .
Congratulations on your 2000+ posts . . .
