Farming isn't easy.
Raising chickens isn't easy.
Raising pigs isn't easy.
Raising kids isn't easy.
Life isn't easy.
As "the Dread Pirate Roberts" said, "Life is pain. Anyone that tells you differently is selling something."
Life is full of wonderful things, too.
This world is full of beauty in the midst of the horrors and awful things we will all encounter.
This little monarch butterfly has been fluttering by the homestead for the last few days.
I find butterflies to be quite pretty, pleasant, and ultimately beautiful.
Nature in general can be quite beautiful.
Even when things aren't easy, I try to remember to find the beauty in nature.
