Windswept Acres

I'm a city girl turned country dweller, with more miles on me than I care to admit. I share my life with my writer husband and three dogs, none of which were planned (including the husband. Yeah, sometimes good husbands just happen to people!).

We've completed building our goat barn, and have two happy, healthy kids frolicking in the goat yard, as well as our herd queen. Fresh goat's milk, cheese and goat milk ice cream next year. Yay!

You win some, you lose some, and some get rained out,
but you gotta suit up for them all.

You might need an umbrella at times, but keep running thru the rain!

Have a wonderful week.

I loved your comment on my blog. Unfortunately, retirement isn't in the cards for me. There just won't be enough money.

Being happy doesn't mean that everything is perfect.
It means that you've decided to look beyond the imperfections.

BLESSINGS IN DISGUISE
We all want happiness and dread the thought of rain.
When the sun fails to shine, we worry and complain.

We forget that God above is infinitely wise,
and sometimes our ails are blessings in disguise.

For if we're always happy filled with sunshine and cheer,
our hearts would hold no mercy for others who shed tears.

So when trouble comes knocking, remember to stay strong.
Rainbows always follow the storm and dark clouds never stay long.

Do not go where the path may lead, go instead
where there is no path and leave a trail.
