We have so much to be thankful for this year. First, we are thankful to Lord and the prayers he has answered. Between illnesses and injuries, job changes, and major changes on the farm the Lord has always been there for us. Maybe not always in the timing that we wanted, but he is faithful in us as long as we are in Him. I am thankful for my wonderful husband. Through the ups and downs of this year we have been each others rock and we truly are stronger because of it. I couldn't imagine life without him. I'm thankful for our beautiful children. Life is crazy most days, but I couldn't imagine going through life without them all. They may make me want to pull my hair out some days and give up on home schooling, but then there are the moments everyday where they make me laugh uncontrollably, watch them learn and discover something new, and continue to grow in character that is pleasing to us and to the Lord. We are thankful to our family and our friends who have helped us along the way. To taking time off of their weekends to help assemble buildings, to giving advice how to proceed forward. Without them we wouldn't have gotten as far as we have this year. And last, but not least, thankful for the CSA members who stuck with us through the transition from Fiat Farm to Serenity Farm. We are so touched by comments we are hearing at the drops and through email from members about the excitement and the work that we are doing. Brad and I are passionate about providing quality food for our family and for all of yours. To continue our success we will need you and your support. Spread the word this holiday season with your family and friends and have them check out our website and see what they think about delicious, nutritious, local food that they could have each week starting next spring. I am thankful for the "down" time we have right now, but I am so excited to get our seeds started and transplanted and see new growth out in the field. I can't wait for fresh snap peas, mouth-watering tomatoes, juicy watermelons, and more pasture-ranged eggs than I can cook up for breakfast. The possibilities are endless this coming year and we know it will be hard work, but are so looking forward to providing you with the food that you desire.
We wish everyone a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family and friends. If you feel like it, please share in the comment section what you are thankful for this year.
Hoping our day tomorrow is less eventful than it was today!
Until next time,
