It is our nature, I suppose, to focus on the negative, or at least to allow the negative to capture our attention in ways that positive things do not.
So, I may find myself distressed about deer eating my okra while not being sufficiently mindful of all the beautiful gardens that are undamaged and producing great food for us.
I may become distressed over the death or sickness of a goat, and not be sufficiently mindful of all those that are thriving and healthy.
There is much to be happy about and much to be grateful for these days.
Our farm’s production continues to expand. More and more people are becoming aware of us and are choosing to get their food from us. The things we’ve been advocating for years no longer seem quite so crazy to people.
These are good days.
