We spent a few hours this morning walking the property, taking in what's been accomplished in 2022, and looking ahead to what might be in 2023.
Our little family has come so far in such a short time here on the Homestead!
Lots of hard work, with triumphs and failures alike, and we have no doubt we'll experience more of that in the year to come.
I am, however, reminded over and over that good things worth having often come with hard work, and you're more likely going to have to fight for anything worth having. The most important things rarely come easy - and that's okay!
There's much to be said about a satisfaction of a good day's work, and the work itself often doesn't even feel like "work."
But even on the days when "work" seems daunting, more difficult than usual, I am encouraged when I see how far we've come in just a year's worth of "trying," here on the Homestead, and I look forward to what's to come.
While the following verse isn't necessarily about Farm Chores, I believe the sentiment remains the same, when Paul says in Galatians 6:9 "And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not." If we keep the mindset of what good will come from what we're doing, it will all be worth it in the end - in all things, including farm chores.
Thanks for joining us on this journey of becoming self-sufficient at Forever Homestead.
Here's to What Might Be in 2023!
