gratitude


Despite the frustration of not being able to walk, to drive, to help around the house and farm--these broken bones have been a great lesson in gratitude. It has been easy for all of us to reflect on how blessed we are to be so mobile most of the time, to have so much joyful work fill our days and so much wonderful community to lift us up when times are hard.


I want to thank you my "online community" by giving away a jar of our syrup! This giveaway is open to all of our blog followers and subscribers (even if you join during this giveaway)
Just take a minute and share something you are grateful for today!

(This giveaway is open until April 3rd)

  2. It is amazing how much life changes when we are injured. It is never an easy time, but it does bring about a whole new outlook and a deep feeling of gratitude.

    Today I am grateful for my community, they are like minded families who make this journey I am on really amazing.

  3. I just finished reading a book on Aunt Arie, one of the main "stars" of the Foxfire series. The book features interviews that were undertaken towards the end of her life, after nearly 9 decades of hard work, as well as a stroke. There was a quote in there that has really hit home for me - "I can't do much. But I can love."

    Wish that I'd had that quote on hand when my now 6-week old was a real newborn, when really I couldn't do much BUT love.

    I suppose that today I'm grateful for love. And for the opportunity to remember that!

  4. it's so hard to sit still when you're used to being a busy mama, I suppose the more you rest the quicker it will heal :) Praying for quick healing x

  5. Oh, Wishing you peace and healing - I understand completely how hard it is like when I was pregnant last winter/spring.
    I am so grateful for our health - we have lost two dear neighbors (and there are probably just 20 families in a 3 mile radius) in the last three months.
    You are so sweet to offer some maple syrup. It is such a treat for us.

  17. Drat I missed the give away! but I'm glad Tonya gets to enjoy your syrup. So do you sell it online & ship it normally? Or do you only sell locally? I'd love to purchase some.

    1. On our etsy site! But only 12oz there...I could do a custom to send you a quart size. The biggest size we have is 1/2 gallon, but I wouldn't want to ship that jar, I'd be afraid of it breaking! :)
