Sometimes I feel like this…
Like I’m driving down a road with no end, not really sure where I am going. The drivers in front of me seem to know their destination and exit the road as needed, but I keep driving. Down a long winding highway knowing it goes somewhere, but not being able to see around each bend or above each valley I go into.
When we visited Indiana something changed for me, or maybe I should say grew. I am tired of the business of where we live and so many people. I remembered being a country girl and having animals and responsibility around me in the form of feed times, animal care, etc. I miss the slower pace of life, the open spaces, and nicer people. I don’t know if this desire will come true or if its just a detour thought for what God has planned. I just know I am on a road… a road to somewhere.

Similar thoughts. The only thing I’m not sure about is if its right to expect to live with relaxation when my parents and siblings are working hard in urban place.
Well I guess if that is wearing on you then have them come live with you… the lifestyle isn’t for everyone. Its a lot of hard work so I am not sure if we had a farm if there would be much time for relaxation. I worked harder on my family farm then most people would think. I would hope your family would be happy for you and want to come visit you for a little R&R and to help out. I know our families would be happy for us and visit a lot, or even move near or on our property with us. For us things are a family affair.
I am in love with rural America and a farming lifestyle. Have been a part of it since 1997 and would not trade it for anything in the world 🙂
I hope that you get your dream sometime soon! I know how important it is to you—
I am in LOVE with rural America as well and can’t wait to be a part of it again. As a child growing up that way I have great memories and wouldn’t trade them either. I pray God has this in his plans for us and we can live out the rest of our years where we started them… on a farm 🙂
Sometimes we have to stop and reassess so we can set a new destination. Sounds like you have a new destination in mind and that always brings enthusiasm. Enjoy it. 🙂
Thanks, we have a destination and hope it’s in God’s plan as well 🙂
I don’t think you are alone in your thoughts. The world is almost too [easily] connected these days; things move way to fast. Technology is approaching a point where it is counter-productive I think. These newer generation cannot function without their smartphones, can hardly string a sentence together – much less write it properly. It just may be that I am getting older. Quicker, faster, better, more, get things done now, go go go…this is not good for the soul. Both my wife and I work in a big cities, but very much enjoy getting back to our small town where we live to slow down, garden, go for bike rides, relax and just be.
Ya I agree it is hard with all this technology and things being too easy for young people these days. Too much building and taking of peoples farms. Not enough helping preserve land. Thanks for your thoughts on this 🙂
Hoping for you that the road you are on leads to a place you love to be sweet friend. Hugs
Thank you. You are always so kind and your thoughts uplifting 🙂
