Friday Farm Girl
I am linking today with Dandelion House for a blog hop.
I noticed that she has new farm girls I haven't met so when
this crazy day slows down I will be visiting around.
This morning I was thinking about the just what is a " Farm Girl."
I think anyone can be a farm girl if you live on a farm or in an apartment
or even as the lady who gives Oprah eggs in Santa Barbara.
Being a farm girl I think is a state of mind, it is the desire to live a
slower pace, work with your hands, lead a quiet life. Live with the rhythm
of nature all around you. Grow food with your hands and feed your family
with what you grow.
Being a farm girl is about patience. It is about waiting for seeds to germinate,
waiting for rain and watching the sky to see what the day will bring. By living
the life of a farm girl we can get back to the roots that call to us to simpler times.
Times that family was the glue that held our nation together.
Taking the time to stop and listen as a egg hatches a chick. When I stopped to listen
as the chick was peeping in its egg, I don't think I had ever felt such awe.
Some people may not understand this life that we have returned to but I am
glad I have and I know that every day I get to be a farm girl I am so blessed.
Have a lovely day,
Farm girl Kim
