The Journey Begins

Welcome to my world!
I have wholly arrived in the 21st century with my first blog!
I'm excited to share my thoughts and feelings as we journey together through the pages of our lives.
I also plan to post photos, and snippets of poetry that I love.
I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I am a homeschool mom of 7 children, three of whom still live at home.
I am the grandmother of 1+. The + will be born sometime in September.

I am a farmer girl wanna be, and this has been a hectic week on our little farm.
I was gone to Girls Camp for most of the week. Coming home Saturday morning, we discovered 3 baby chicks under our broody hen.
Sunday after Church, we discovered my 6yo ewe had died. This was quite traumatic, and the little bummer lamb we raised to be her friend was now alone.
Then, my 17yo daughter found another chick hatching. Well, she *thought* it was in distress, so she *helped* it come out of it's shell. She was beside herself when I told her it was SUPPOSED to struggle and look like a dead rat for awhile. SO, for the remainder of the day she was working on chick physical therapy. She wiggled, pushed, pulled and whatever else she could think of to rehabilitate the doomed chick.
I am happy to report that as of 11:00 PM Sunday, the chick was out of the woods. Now, when she comes home from work the little thing knows, and starts chirping madly. It is quite hilarious!

As I contemplate the cirlcle of life that has played itself out here the last few days, I am continually reminded of the love our Heavenly Father has for us. How a simple prayer brought His love into play.
