What’s almost ironic is how quickly time flies. I had a blog update that I was going to write about changes on the homestead. Lessons gleaned from our first full summer. The advantages of having some tools to use that make doing the work a whole lot easier once we got them.
Then just like that we lost one of our close family members… a friend.. a valued person in our household.
So the thoughts about what to write suddenly seemed somewhat insignificant as the needs to be a support for my wife, kids, and other members of our beloved family and friends found themselves all coming together to mourn and remember. To find a way to describe that hollow spot that suddenly seems to be where they were.
Feeding the chickens, throwing hay.. chasing a goat.. toasting off a beer at the end of the day. It won’t be the same without my brother in law there..
… time brings changes that effect us all. Never forget the good times and lessons learned.
Carpe Diem! Seize the day! You never know when your feet will hit the ground for the last time…
