Day 30: My farmer.

A few days into my 30 day blogging adventure a friend asked if I had planned out my posts for the month.  Hmmm.  That would have been a good idea.

I've been flying by the seat of pants each day with each post.  Looking back, I'm kind of glad.  By not planning it all out it advance, I got to reflect each day about what really matters and what I love most about my farmer, our small town, our farm, and raising our kids out here.  The few days I was grumpy with my farmer were hard. I had to dig deep, but there was always something.  It always came back to him.

I used to drive my college friends crazy by saying, "I have the best boyfriend in the whole world."  And I did.  

After we got married, I never made the transition to "I have the best husband in the whole world."  But I do.

He married me even though I was landless.  He puts up with my silly city girl questions and ways.  He moved me to a caring community.  He gave me my babies and a second Grandma Millie.

I hate to think about what my life would be like without him.

Thanks to everyone for sticking with me these 30 days.  I now need to take a short break from blogging.  I have a fifteen page research paper due next week and I am really behind.  Did I mention that I really don't like writing?
