A year ago today, we started down a path carrying a few hand tools and a back pack. Today we walked that path with 7 of our goats and barely touched a branch.
A year ago today, we couldn’t walk through our 10 acres.
Today we criss-crossed our way through well-worn paths to get from one side to the other.
A year ago today, we were run off by a thunderstorm in the early afternoon - taking refuge in my tiny Honda Civic.
Today, we worked through the thunderstorm, getting soaked to the bone because goats needed to be fed, watered and other farm chores done.
A year ago today, we would let the thick underbrush give us a feeling of overwhelm.
Today, we see that underbrush as food for our goats
A year ago today the neighbors that passed by our farm would slow roll by probably wondering what the heck was happening.
Today, our neighbors honk and wave and stop by to chat. We’ve made some great friends in the last year.
A year ago today, we made a list.
Today, we are crossing items off that list and adding new items every few months. We are accomplishing goals and making plans.
A year ago today, we made a promise to each other to have fun and enjoy this new adventure in our lives.
Today, we are able to laugh and enjoy the hard labor we do each day and can really see the possibilities for our future.
A year ago today we started to live our dream.
Today we are continuing that dream.
