I took a few pictures this afternoon, August 1st. My sisters birthday.
There is so much beauty in this life. I was thinking earlier about a lot of people. Honestly, I find something very beautiful, intriguing and touching about every single person I meet and know. If you search to identify the good in people, you will see it. Sometimes you have to squint, but it's there.
I am also humbled to say that I also have a growing support system of friends that cheer me on. Thank you to all of you- you know who you are. I am hesitant to write specific names- I notice every kind deed and wish though...
Of course, there are always people that are aggravated by my passions and probably rolling their eyes right now. Your eyes rolling is not my fault. I've heard plenty of remarks of ridicule. I will kill your nerves with my kindness and refuse to snap. Nice try, you don't win.
One of my bucket list items as a child was to have a farm in the south. For years, I have by trial and error planted seeds, rooted cuttings and experimented with a lot of animals and plants.
Finally, I think I have the farm in self-sustain mode now and it should provide us with food and beauty every season with little maintnence.
This has taken a lot of muscle, shovel and determination. You just have no idea unless you've been the one with a shovel in your hand, fighting with weeds, covered in dirt or carrying around 50lb bags of animal food.
Just counting my blessings today and looking forward.
Good things to come. Smiling big.
