I wanted a yard chock full of roses and perennial flowers, with fruit trees and bushes bursting with bounty and permaculture gardens teaming with food and pleasure. I wanted a little cottage with pink window boxes and lovely woodstove. I wanted a farm full of animals running around with their young, so I could raise my own food, naturally and organically. I wanted to make all my personal care products and share them with others. And I needed an income, so at this stage of my life, I wanted a bed and breakfast where I could meet amazing people and listen to their stories while I served them.
And, I have all this and so very much more.
I do not need to be somewhere else. I need to be here. A new opportunity may be opening up, a connection with only a handful of organically minded local people, which will allow me to vend my grass raised lamb and goat, rabbits and eggs and maybe even soap and body butters and the herbal products I love to make. We shall see.
My heart is filled with gratitude. How many can say they are truly content and have what they want and want what they have? I am blessed. Very, very blessed.
