I’m grateful to have grown up with chickens and that we’ve been able to have chickens for our kids too. The eggs are delicious, they handle all our kitchen scraps, and they’re beautiful to look at through our dining room window.

My Mother

I am grateful for my mother, who turned 81 this week. So much of what I have been able to achieve has been possible due to sacrifices she made for me. I am cast in her image, I hear her voice in my head all the time, and I see her best qualities reflected out into my children.
