The girls have been wonderful at keeping the kitchen tidy and they even welcomed tonight's guest at the Moose Hills Inn and saw to his comfort while I was out to dinner. I always think I can do everything myself and do not like to ask for help often, but I realize how great it can be to have assistance, especially willing assistance from those I love so much.
My son's partner has grown quite fond of the The Fat Ewe Farm and is very much considering making a corner of the farm her home, though my son is not thrilled with the lack of stimulating activities in the area. I did offer ten acres for each of the kids if they paid for the subdivision. Wouldn't it be so wonderful if we were close enough to each other to help when needed? When they have their children, I could babysit and help out and from time to time, they could give me a little break on the farm. It may be wishful thinking on my part to have the kids around me, but I can dream.
In the meantime, I am grateful to have them here at all and I love each one so much. I could not have better young adults. They have grown into people I am so very proud of and love beyond words. I am so blessed.
