I did a mediocre job keeping a tally page on the sidebar...in the end it became a place to leave notes to myself! I am pleased that I was able to document as much as I did though.
I put up the qualifications I have to work the job I have held for the past 24 plus years...
I have shared my family with you- in pretty much every post.
I have shared my sons
I have shared my thumb~ it seems to be green!
I have shared some of the books I have read.
And have given this book to any and all that request it.
I have shared a life that is rewarding and priceless.
I have shared how to have a successful marriage, by living it...as I am certain no reader can leave the farm without knowing my love I have for Bill. Oh and in case it isn't apparent, the love he has for me...
I have shared my views, my thoughts, my opinions.
I have stood upon my soapbox at the Double Nickel and told the world (well anyone that stopped by) how I feel. I haven't held back.
I have shared my life...and in return many of you come back to visit, time and time again. For that I am humbled. At times I choke up at the email box...I thank you for your notes of encouragement. For those that see fit to help in other ways, your actions are graciously received. We have no words...
and then it came to me. We do have something that will become our focus in 2013. 2013 will be the year of gratitude on the farm. I pray that I can share more of my gratitude. We live in times where we see and hear so many bad things, that we overlook mentioning the good. I pray that I can really focus on that.
I am thankful for every single reader that stopped by and I wish to share how grateful I am to know others seemed interested in the journey we have been on. Believe it or not, it has been easier to know that others are interested.
I cannot close 2012 without doing two things...first and foremost- I wish to remind any and all that we give Bibles away. We received a new shipment and have 48 new Bibles awaiting a reader. Maybe you know someone that needs hope...maybe you can request a Bible that you can personally give to another. Please consider sharing this post on your blog...In times of hardship it offers peace. In times of sickness, one finds the eternal Healer, in times of heaviness and crises...this Book contains the way, the truth and the light. If you would like a Bible-ask and we will send it on to you.
Be sure to read the label as I am a label writing kind of blogger.
May you have a safe Happy New Year
Bill & Jennifer
