Thankful Thursday

One of the added benefits to mowing the yard next to the pasture is 
getting to watch the heifers enjoying  those grass clippings
that were blown under the fence.  They looked a little like excited
kids in a candy store!

Even though farm life is extremely busy in the month of May,
I am thankful for the moments that bring smiles,
for the family celebrations of  Mother's Day ,birthdays
 and graduations,

and for the beauty of the garden  that 
remind us that all these gifts 
are freely given by our heavenly Father.

A Mother's Love

What's not to love about this day of celebrating mothers?

Down on the farm, we celebrate all mothers!

A Mother's Love
A mother's love is special
It's present every day,
A gift that came from heaven
That God has sent our way.
Her job is never ending
She's there all day and night,
To be there for her children
And be their guiding light.
Her thoughts are with them always
Even if they are apart,
Her children have a special place
Deep down inside her heart.
Mother's are a special gift-
A gift from up above,
This world would seem so empty
Without a Mother's love.

Happy Mother's Day!

Thankful Thursday

It may be too cold or  wet for pasture grasses or crops to grow,
but you can always count on the weeds to take advantage of the 
worst conditions!

We were grateful for the two days without rain that allowed 
Cody to begin weed control spraying in the pasture next to the house.
This pasture has a variety of Bermuda and other mixed grasses that
will grow much better with less competition from the weeds and make
a more nutritious  hay bale for our cows to enjoy.

If you look closely, you can see a couple of extra heads in the 
tractor cab.  

Hattie and Breck didn't waste the opportunity 
to ride in the tractor with their Daddy.

I am thankful that we can share life on the farm with 
our family and celebrate the milestones of 
each year  with those we love the most!
