I am apologizing to all of you. I’ve spent the last week, wanting to post, but not knowing how to go about it. I’ve had a lot of things going on in my life. And I was feeling overwhelmed, stressed, frustrated and everything else in between.
I didn’t want to write about it, but knew that whatever I DID write, my feelings would taint it, and it would not be the light-hearted, tongue-in-cheek type of posts that I like to write. So I wrote nothing. And I shouldn’t have taken that route.
I’m trying to make changes in my life. I’m trying to better myself. I’m trying to do things that will improve the future for my children and, hopefully, in some small way, will improve the future of agriculture as a whole.
I’m trying, but…well, let’s just say that it’s become a lot more difficult than I anticipated.
But, it’s time for me to shake it off, and get back to my grand plan and get to work. Just minus some of the support I was expecting. In my life, though, I’ve come to expect the unexpected. Nothing goes as planned, and that’s what makes life interesting.
Well, thank you for still being here, and thank you for still reading. I promise, no more of this fuddy-duddy stuff. It’s time for some serious writing, some serious laughing and some serious living.
Hope you’re ready for it! 🙂
Hey, don’t be too hard on yourself. We all go thru ups and downs in life. I hope all the changes you are working on succeed beyond your expectations.
Yes, I’m always my own worst critic! And thanks for your support! See…when you look for something, many times you don’t have to look any further than your own backyard! Or in this case, blog!!! 🙂
I hope everything works out! I wish I had those cows in my backyard. No matter what, you’re a lucky person!
You’re absolutely correct. I’m extremely fortunate and lucky to have this beautiful place to call home. And I need to remember that! Thank you! 🙂
Laugher is so unappreciated unless you have been at a place where there was nothing to laugh at. Hang in there. Do the best that you can do, and be the best that you can be each day. It’s ok to have a not so perfect day or week or month. That is life. We are here to pull you out of it!
Yep, that is so true. And look, I was putting off going to my blog, and that’s where I should have gone to start! You guys all rock! Thank you! 🙂 I’m shaking off the ickies and working on the smile and the tan today! Can’t wait!
As farm wives, sometimes we get the brunt of day without even knowing it, just because we are there. But this also goes vise versa (?)….hang in there…it’s a season:)
You are absolutely correct! And this season has just seem worse than some, but still so much better than what it could be! I need to remember that!
If I have ever learned a good thing from my worst experience in my life is it that life is to short to not do the things you love to, there may not be time for it later as we always think. I know I have put thingsoff and said someday. Well someday may not come, do it now. Enjoy life and everyone that is special to you.
You are so, so right, Jackie my dear. No more waiting, no more somedays. Time to grab the bull by the horns and just do it. It’s a lesson that way too many need to learn. Enjoying each moment is so important…as you have learned in a way that humbles me completely. Love you, and you inspire me completely.
I’m always here for you. Thinking of you lots!!
Val, sorry to hear you were having issues! If you need anything, I’m just a phone call (and a short plane ride) away! I did miss your posts!
