I have always wanted to start a blog. It is one of those things that I have never gotten to cross off of my list.
I am a farm wife, a mama, a daughter, a sister and a friend. Blogger was not a title that I had time to add.I have children to care for and a farm to run. That is a lot of mouths to feed! I have a home to run and keep clean. I have errands to run and calls to make.
Start a blog???
Ain’t nobody got time for that!
The to do list never ends!
Until it has to.
About a month ago I had to have a fairly major surgery. So no heavy lifting or exerting myself for 6-8 weeks. So what does that mean for someone who isn’t used to stopping? Who is usually the one to take care of everyone and everything.
It is hard to accept.
To sit and watch what you normally do (your way) being done by someone else is hard to deal with. It is hard to accept help when you are the one usually helping. That being said, I am very grateful for all of the help that we have received. Our farm and home couldn’t have kept running without the help of our amazing family. The meals that they provided, the help on the farm and the help running the kids kept everything running like a well oiled machine. And I am very grateful.
But, that left a lot of time on my hands.
Time that I have had to slow down and reflect on my many blessings.
Time to think.
Time to rest.
Time to heal.
Time to start a blog.
So please follow me on this journey as I share how I simply live as a perfectly imperfect farm wife.
