Today there was deep snow, cold toes, frozen hoses, and ample frustration. There was the needed expression of big emotions, then apologies, then forgiveness.
We think we're out here to care for the animals, but some days we're really here for the lessons in grace.
And sure, sometimes we question this path we're on. Days we wonder what life would be like without animals, garden, homestead.
Without so much work.
Surely there is an easier path out there that would satisfy us without so much effort.
Or is there?
Because The goal was never an "easy" life. But a juicy, vibrant, and messy life, brimming with real, hard work?
Yes. I'm pretty sure that was what we signed up for.
