I Am So Touched, and So Thankful
Wednesday, April 04, 2012
It has been a bit busy here on the farm, but I wanted to write and let you know how touched I was by the responses to my last blog. I was feeling so frustrated, like I was shouting from the mountain top, and nobody was listening…or cared to listen.
I have been part of a speaking group, going out to tell others my farm story. So many people are too many generations removed from the farm to know what we do, or why we do what we do. I want to tell you my story. I don’t want the media to think they can tell it for me. I would expect the same for those in an insurance office, a doctor’s office, or a worker at the plant that bottles my shampoo. I don’t want to hear how you do what you do from anyone else but you.
My plans are to be more vocal, not only about my weight loss struggles and victories, but also about my farming life. In “real life” the two are not separate, so why not combine them here? I have a story to tell, and I would love to share it with you.
I am looking forward to getting to know some of you more. You have blessed me with thought provoking comments and encouragement. Thank you!
