Sometimes people suck!

Sometimes people suck!   I love people. I love most people. I really do. But sometimes people suck.   Sometimes you want a relationship you just can’t have. You want someone in your life to be different than they are. Maybe you want them to say things to you…like “I love you.” Maybe you want […]

What the hell was I thinking?

This past week we were awoken in the middle of the night by a tornado warning.  This is not the first time we have been through this.  8 years ago a big tornado system composed of  22 tornados came for a visit.  We’ve seen several from afar, but this system made a turn and stopped […]

I know you.

  The fierce woman you are. The independent, strong, arrogant woman you are.   The, “I got this” – woman. The, “I can handle this on my own” – woman.   But there comes a time when things start to crack.  When the exhaustion, restless nights, endless hours start to catch up…and there you are […]

Don’t give up

I have to start over a lot.   When spray season gets here. When we start planting. When we start harvesting.   When school starts. When we coach my son’s basketball team. When we teach religion. When school gets out. When winter comes!   It seems like life is about getting in a groove and […]

You know you

You know who you are. You have your values and beliefs. You have your idea of what your life should be like.   Sometimes you forget exactly who you are or who you want to become. You allow others to influence your direction. You allow others to feed your self-esteem.   But you still have […]

The best things in life are free…

I love waking up in the morning and watching the sunrise.  The golden glow from the sun shines further than the eye can see.  The birds are singing beautiful songs to bring in the new day.  And I can hear the wind whistling songs through the trees. I love driving back roads to look at […]

Are you on empty?

You are smart women!!!  I know this because in all the years I’ve been involved with agriculture I’ve only known smart women (ok, mostly smart women).  Women who can independently take care of issues that need to be dealt with.  Women who know first responder shit and deal with it.  Women who take control and […]

Being rich versus being wealthy.

Yesterday, I had a moment that took my breath away. My son came home from school and said he was in class and they were talking about being rich versus being wealthy.  He said there was some debate as many thought they were the same thing. I’ve taught him otherwise, as I had learned years […]
