It’s been another spin around the sun for my farmer.
65 to be exact.
We mark time.
Trusting for each moment.
I don’t always do those moments well.
To live present.
Embrace the now.
Having eyes to see what is right in front of me.
It’s so easy to miss the beauty.
It’s so easy to get caught in the race of hurry and miss that which is right in front of you.
Insignificant moments are important.
Some day those moments may be all you have.
So we’re celebrating my farmer.
Grateful for the time we have.
Amazed at the amount of work he does, inspired by the way he always makes time for someone.
He has learned how to live in the moment.
He desires others needs above his own.
A car in the ditch, a milk jar to be filled, compost to load, a tour of the farm, all in a days journey.
Always up for adventure.
Eager to fix or build something, or nod off for a cat nap.
He is kind, gentle and so wise.
So we’re celebrating him today.
We’ll look for adventure today and take time to remember.
There’s a lot of life that’s been lived and there’s a lot more to come.
