Need help setting goals? We LOVED this course and it really helped us to have a template that we do every year: 5 Days to Your Best Year Ever
And you can find Abby Jo and Daniel’s blog HERE.
Here is their daughter’s poem:
We were made of timber and grass
Magic light washed us by day,
And sleep kept us at night
We were of the woods and the woods were us
Blessed with youth, protected by angels
We whiled away the days,
Until there were no more
The clock had stopped, it was time to go
Perhaps it’s instinct or a family curse,
Which prompts us on our way
Our feet are roaming
We come to rest in a concrete wild,
Filled with pavement, and neighbors’ staring, prying eyes
But a garden grows
And our feet rest, but they sleep not
Hearts heal, tears are mended, voices heard
Two winters have passed and our feet grow restless
We must be on our way to a familiar land
Where children play and sunshine dances
Relatives gather and gardens grow
And for a time, our feet shall sleep
For, we are made of timber and grass
And the clay of the earth, and return to it we must.
The kids have grown!
And….they added another!
Here they (almost all) are
Raising food has always been important to this family,
no matter where they lived.
Who says you can’t raise food in your front yard, in town?
(other than draconian HOA regulations)
Life in a Fifth Wheel
And in case you thought the adventure was ending…
Life is an adventure! Many blessings as you live your OWN!
