Its been an eventful 2012 for my small family. Earlier in the year, we learned that we needed to sell the farm in order to make a job move, and we have been in that process for a while now. The farm has been for sale, as have my animals, and my lovely goat herd has been getting smaller and smaller with my last four breeding gals left.
Then just four weeks ago, our first grandchild Jake was born, and we have been lucky to be able to spend a lot of his first month with him. With our future move, we will be so much closer, and will be able to see this little one grow.
Since we learned of our move, I appreciate every day spent on the farm with all my senses. We have been so lucky to have been owners of such a special property for soon to be ten years. I wish we could move it with us.
So I look forward to 2013, not for the move from the farm - that will be sad - but that it takes us closer to our daughter and her growing family. That will give us much joy.
I wish you all a joyful New Year too!
