I’m thankful that there are people who take the time and effort to grow food to sell at the farmer’s market. This makes it much easier for those of us that want good healthy local food and don’t have the space or time to grow it ourselves. I also appreciate that it gives me the opportunity to get involved in my community and to get to know my neighbors.
I’m thankful that I have space for a few homegrown vegetables. I don’t have much space, but things I manage to grow give me a deep sense of satisfaction and freedom. I’m very very thankful for this opportunity.
I’m also thankful for my heritage and the women that came before me who canned and preserved and grew their own food. I’m thankful that they passed these lessons down through the generations and I can help my sister pass them along to her children. I love canning in these jars that my grandmothers used for so many years.
I’m particularly thankful for the changing seasons and the beauty and variety it brings to my life. I really appreciate the ebb and flow of the seasonal changes and I love being in tune with those through gardening and eating seasonally.
When I step out onto my back porch I am thankful that it is trees I see and not skyscrapers…
For muddy little hands that bring me flowers.
Llamas at dusk…
Dancing in the rain!
And I’m even thankful for Camels in the Snow!
At Roberts Roost I’m thankful for…
Hands, they do such amazing things,
And Band-aids to patch up the hands after a project is done (there is always blood…)
What kinds of things are you thankful for?
