Heavy Thinking....

I have been thinking  a lot lately.  So if your not ready to hear me babble some you may want to close out the page.  Things are so up in the air with the day to day. The drought has brought on so much uncertainty.  We have to make sure that we have enough hay for the winter. We need to decide how much corn to keep back to feed the cattle for the winter.  We got our preg check done to see who is bred and who isn't.  And hopefully the corn crop wont be a total loss.  That effects the income.  But all those things are part of what we do.  Farming is dependant on the weather and Gods plan.

There has also been so much sadness in our lives lately.  My Uncle is battling a deadly illness.  And does so with the strength of a man who is amazing.  My best friend has breast cancer and is starting treatments next week.  And she has such courage and grace. Another childhood friend is helping her father battle cancer while going through her own life changing.  And she always has a smile and a kind word for someone.   My SIL's best friend it watching her mother in the battle of her life.  A gal that is my age is hospitalized with illness and she has four small children.  One of them being less a month old.  Another family had their little babe several weeks early.  They had the joy of being blessed with her for a while before she got her angel wings yesterday.  And there is the daily story of another family getting divorced or a child that has been harmed.

 It truly makes me reflect on everything that i have been blessed with.  I lay awake and listen to my husband sleeping safely beside me.  Knowing that my beautiful babies are tucked safe and healthy in their beds.  And i know some of the burden that these families are struggling with.  Just like so many of you.  And when I think about it I know for every season there is a reason.  And only God knows the plan.  So stop and enjoy your family.  Take those photos however silly they may be.  Get up a little early and sit and watch the sun rise.  You might surprise yourself how much you realize you are missing.

Thanks for letting me babble.  And cry my eyes out while I'm typing this.  But i feel better. 
Have a great day!

that's our girl...

shes concentrating.

and then Uncle Jeff or daddy says something, and she's all smiles!

Our Little Miss!
 I love that she's so loving, caring and so comfortable in her own.
 I was afraid for a bit that she was going to be too girly.
 But she has really grown into her own and she's a great mix of girly and tom boy. 
She's fallen in love with working with the cattle, which puts a smile on my face.

This is Evan.
  I was super excited when his mom called and asked me to take his photos.
Evan is laid back, easy going and not easy to get to smile.
We took these photos during one of our hot spells.
And the grass wasn't very pretty in spots, but we worked around that.
And the cabin is special because his family made it themselves.
I wish Evan all the best in everything he does...
