They say a picture can say a thousand words. Some of those words for this picture would be “acceptance”, acceptance of the new and the old, the word “heritage”, and “wisdom”. I think another word that rings true would be “challenge”. Yes, that word surely fits this picture. A few others that hold true is “freedom”, “sacrifice” and the most important word here, “love” – always for me, it’s love. But, before I start to tell you how all these words describe this picture, you should snuggle up with a blanket and a hot cup of coffee (or two). Yes, I have said this before as I have another story to tell.
One of the most important things to me is love & acceptance. We all want to belong somewhere to someone somehow . With all my children the most important thing that I have taught them is to make people feel welcome whether in our home, the restaurant or passing them on the street.
In 4th grade he wanted to take a hunters safety course. I don’t think my son knew that I use to be a vegetarian, or that I thought it was disgusting to hang animal body parts on the wall nor did he realize my favorite Disney movies was Bambi and Jungle Book.
Living on a farm you learn gratitude. That is important to me. I wanted my boys to learn what the dirt can give you. Making something from nothing through hard work, sweat and perseverance.
I am a firm believer people come into our life for a reason……. good or bad. We as humans are blessed to feel emotion…… good or bad.
