Tuesday @ Ten: Grow

»Posted by on Mar 12, 2015 in Heartfelt Treasures | 0 comments

Tuesday @ Ten word of the week is Grow! All around us nature is announcing that Spring is just around the corner. Baby lambs frolic in the fields and daffodils open up their bright yellow trumpets along the walkway. New life. Rebirth. You can almost see nature growing right before your eyes. What about us? As adults, how do we grow? How do we announce new life and rebirth in our life? How do we recognize and acknowledge our growth? Are we still growing?

Remote and isolated was an understatement. We loved it. David worked as a Paramedic at Tillamook Ambulance. His scheduled shift started at 5:00 p.m. and ended two days later at 5:00 p.m. This meant I was alone quite a bit with only our little three year old and myself to handle the chores around the house and the farm.
