Happy New Year

Taking a moment, this morning, before 2014 sets in to reflect upon life this past year.  

I hope you all remember those moments of beauty......



and those moments of rust.  



Those times of surprise when you walked out the front door.  




I hope you recall your own moments of sheer grace in those unexpected times of life.  



And, mostly, I hope you appreciate the everyday circumstances of your own life.  For it really is the enjoyment of the small things that makes for a life well lived.  




Wishing all of you out there the very best of 2014.  Thank you for taking time out of your day to read about my humble, farmy kind of life.  

Happy New Year!!!!!
