It is funny sometimes how life works itself out, while you are trying to make other plans.
Sometimes I think we have too much happening on our little farm, and then I think maybe we could add some goats, or some llamas, or something......
In the midst of raising two teenagers, there are cows to manage, bees to worry over, (can't help it!), hay cutting concerns, farmhouse projects, and well, the list could go on and on. It would be easier if we chose to live in our small town neighborhood, without all of these added troubles.
But, the joy is in the doing. It's in the concern, the craziness, and the desire to do some things that my grandparents did.
I think Pa Mac explains it well. Why we bother with taking on farm responsibilities, when we could really take the easy way out.
