.. with some opinions from the farmer’s wife 🙂
I think some folks are of the opinion that farm life is a magical way of living. They can come spend a week here and see 😉 While I love that we are blessed to live on a farm, there are days right now when I wonder why we do what we do. Perhaps my pregnant self is voicing it’s opinion. It happens way too often 🙂 But when your walk is more like a waddle, and the contractions and tightness are present more than not, and you can’t see your feet, you may get a bit irritable at times. Just saying 🙂
These past weeks have been rain and more rain, with farmers trying to get crops in between showers. It’s been busy. And when I say busy, I mean you may or may not sleep every night. I’m talking about the guys here. I have slept every night, some are just shorter than others 🙂 But when the husbands are busy, the wives and children must fill in more. There have been days that my body feels so weary, I can almost cry with relief when the children are all tucked in bed for the night. But it’s what you do, because it needs doing.
I think God was speaking to me in my devotions today when I read this verse. Yes God, I heard you 🙂I was a tad ungrateful for the busyness lately 🙂 And it hurts a bit to work so hard, with milk prices so low. But God provides, and though I forget sometimes, and complain, I am grateful for His love. He shows up in little ways, ways that we don’t even realize right away. Then you look back, and think, wow! He does care so much!
These 2 have been doing so well at pitching in and helping at milking time. Sure, they grumble sometimes, and complain about their aching backs, but I have been blessed with their desire to help. They know I’m not supposed to carry milkers right now, and if I grab one, I usually hear, “Mom, you know what the midwife said” 😉 It makes me feel good that they care!
We absolutely enjoyed the sunshine these last 2 days, but I’m glad for the rain tomorrow, because that should mean a nap for the farmers 🙂 And maybe the farmers wife 🙂
Hope you all have a good weekend!
