In just a short while another chapter in this book I call life will be coming to an end. As I sit waiting for the New Year to begin with anticipation of not just a mere time change on the clock or the turning of a calendar page I once again begin to dream.
2015 with all its wonderful memories and events are now gone. Tucked away in my heart and shared with many through this blog and social media I find myself wondering what lies ahead in the new year. Last year many were brought into my life from both near and far, some I have had the pleasure of meeting face to face, some that I know will happen soon and those that circumstances won’t allow a meeting face to face yet they are very much a part of my life and have brought new purpose to it. For all of you who have messaged me, asked questions or even just gave me a like-Thank You for giving me encouragement to keep writing. As long as I know someone wants to hear about our lives I will continue to share, praying that the information is useful, entertaining and inspiring.
My greatest joy this year has nothing to do with the homestead or blog but is solely a blessing that filled a deep void in my life. My dear friend Cathy who has spent years being my online friend, my telephone shoulder to cry on and my greatest cheerleader and confidant came to see me. We were close before but now we are more so, sisters of the heart which is much stronger than any blood ties. Thank you Cathy for loving me, for being my sister, for always telling me like it is rather than what I want to hear and for bringing such joy to not only my life but to my children too. I love you and hope you know that it is a love greater than words can describe.
Yes the year gone by has had many ups and downs but for every lesson learned I am thankful and truly blessed. I’ll leave you all with s prayer for clarity, praying God leads your every move and you are obedient to him. Happy New Year!!!!!

Your family lives a life style most can, and will only be able to wish they could. Money can’t buy what your family has. What you have built and struggled thru to make this all happen, is something money just can’t buy. You earned it and it’s simply priceless. So be proud of all that you folks are doing, and please keep doing it. I’m sure there are a lot of doubters out there that say you can’t keep this up for long.prove them all wrong and me right. You can do it and you will keep living the way many wish. Keep writing your short stories on your blog. When I recieve them in my email, I read them asap. It really is neat to see the progress you all have made. Keep it up, and maybe you will influence some people to jump in with both feet and try it themselves. Have a great New Year. Randy
Thank you and we intend to spend the rest of our lives here for sure. I do hope that we can be an inspiration to others because it’s important for people to see that with faith and perseverance you can succeed at anything. Have a blessed new year!
The best relationships are those based on honesty and kindness. My sister by choice will sit me down and kindly, sometimes firmly if I’m not paying attention, tell me what’s what. It takes true caring and sometimes courage to put yourself on the line and the people who do are the best. Happy New Year!
Yes and we are so blessed to have “sisters” like that! Happy New year to you too
Wow Sissy, I completely missed this post, I must have been sleeping. Oh my. I feel honored to be your new Sissy and I am so happy to be a part of your wonderful family. I was thrilled that Paul and I were able to come down and meet you all. The trip was very challenging for me, but I was so grateful we came and met my new Sissy and her family. If all goes well, we will be able to see each other again in the not to distant future. I love my new family, all of you take care. Wish we weren’t so far apart.
Hi me again, I wrote a long reply to this post and a couple others, but after I posted them, they disappeared. I have been looking for them, but since I can’t locate, I want you to know that I do read your posts, sometimes a little late. But I do read them, and I was so happy that we were all able to meet back in Sept 2015. I am glad to have you as my new Sissy and love your family being mine now also. Sending lots of love to everyone of you.
