Spring is a time of new life and new beginnings.  It has been a rough winter.  In Sept. I was diagnosed with breast cancer.  I didn't see that coming.  Life has been a scary blur since then.  I hibernated for most of the winter. it is spring.  New life and new beginnings.  I feel healthy and strong.  In fact, I haven't felt this good in years.  My hair is starting to grow back.  I have adopted healthy eating habits for myself and my family.  I am finding joy again.  I have started dreaming and making new plans.  I have started quilting again.

This weekend was spent outside cleaning out flower beds and trimming old debris.  It was very therapeutic.  The tulips and daffodils are poking out.  Even our chickens are singing with happiness.  We are getting about 10 eggs a day from our 12 girls.  It is pure joy to hear them everyday.  They bring me so much happiness.

My mind looks forward to summer...dreams of camping and preserving food.  I understand just how important it is to know where your food comes from. 


  1. I kept checking back - wondering where you had gone. I'm so sorry to hear about the cancer - but so thankful that you're back and feeling good again.
