Today my heart is heavy with blessings.
Some days like yesterday I cry of happiness.
I cry for our good health because I know some people have it worse and some are no longer here.
I cry because of how bad my life truly was and how blessed I am to be alive today.
I cry because of this amazing man God blessed me with.
I cry because of the father my daughters get to have that I didn’t growing up.
I cry because God keeps throwing signs at me.
I cry because I’ve been given the most amazing people in my life who are all at different season in their journey like I am in mine and yet we can talk for hours and feel so connected to each other.
I cry for the roots I’ve grown on my land. I’ve grown permanency after moving 12 times since the age of 18.
I cry when I look at my gardens and enjoy the abundance it provides. A couple years ago I couldn’t grow anything.
I cry at the animals I have been asked to care for, rescue, recover from injury, give them the best life even if I know I have to take their life.
I cry because I get to be involved in my kids life and don’t have to work or go to school from 8:30am-3am and only see my child for a couple hours each day anymore.
I cry because even though I fail daily as a parent my children speak of a God who will fight for them and give them strength.
I cry because God has led me to find knowledge down the less beaten path.
I cry because I get to inspire and encourage other people to follow their passions and make this life, their only life, their best life.
I cry because I get to feed my children my homegrown, foraged, hunted, canned foods.
I cry for so many reasons during so many seasons of life. Thinking back to my life years ago I’m most thankful I am here today alive and experiencing another day.
Thank you God for giving me more days. Thank you Mother Nature for this beautiful, abundant Earth. Thank you to all the medicine people before my time for your wisdom!
Thank you turkey for repeatedly making an appearance of abundance and fertility. Thank you for helping me form a more harmonious relationship between myself and this beautiful world because it’s the foundation to our well-being
