“I wish there was a way to know you’re in the good old days before you’ve actually left them.” – Andy Bernard, The Office
At times it seems as though there are not enough hours in the day for him to get his work done, and too many hours for me to wonder when all our future plans will come together. For now we’re on the farm while he heads west to work on a different farm/ranch, and dreams include owning our operation and me working working along side. It will happen, but it’s the waiting that can challenge patience and trust.
It’s a lot scary to wait on something, not knowing if it will be all you had hoped when it finally materializes.
Times like this calls for perspective. I tend to lose that.
What do I know to be true right now?
- I love him
- He loves me
- I love the South Dakota country
- I love our goofy pups
- I am living a life to be envied
- I am healthy
- I can take photos that make my stubby fingers look dainty
While things are not the way we’d thought they’d be by this time in our life, we’re busy. He does what he loves every day. I get to sleep in and plan trips to see my family.
I get to kiss him every single day.
And for a short season, help him fence to good music, the sun on our face.
