"It's never crowded along the extra mile."
I am so fond of the quote above that I have it as the background on my phone.
I have found great encouragement in it on days that seemed to never end.
I am discovering farm life has a way of nudging you to keep going,
one more hour, one more mile.
To work your hardest in rain or shine,
Monday nights or Saturday mornings.
To walk the road before you
To rest when you are tired
To find laughter in the ordinary
To accept the bad hair days
To treat yourself once in a while
To be tough
To be thankful
To surround yourself with love
And to breathe in the beauty of it all
While it hasn't always been easy, I have come to greatly appreciate
the lessons I have learned while traveling the extra mile.
I hope to see you all along the way.
