With gratitude

I can't begin to describe the emotions of the past couple of days. Mr. M was recently injured while working at the farm. Fortunately we were sent to a great surgeon and all that's left is the healing. Unfortunately the timing of this injury was about as bad as it could have been. Harvest is upon us and that's tough to do with one hand.

Before Mr. M and I even got home from the hospital there was a group of friends, and fellow farmers, organizing an event. They planned to harvest our crop so Mr. M didn't have to worry about that on top of healing.

So on Tuesday (and again on Wednesday) friends came to our fields and harvested the crop. Roto-beeters, harvesters, trucks, tractors, tools and extra pick-ups arrived on a foggy morning. Another group of friends set up a grilling station at the piling site and fed everyone. Another group made enough bars, cookies and goodies to satisfy every sweet tooth.

When the girls and I arrived at the farm in the morning it was so foggy you couldn't see anything but a truck turning onto the highway once in awhile. Later when we left the farm yard, I literally turned the corner and saw this.

Only there was more of everything spread throughout a large field. I was truly, speechless and the tears filled my eyes. It was awesome, amazing, wonderful, overwhelming and so much more.

Since I'm teary-eyed I'll collect myself as you look as these pictures.


There are no words for all that I've seen these last few days. Thank you seem to be the most appropriate words. They don't seem to be enough though. We are grateful for such a wonderful group of neighbors and friends, a community that doesn't hesitate to help and family who are around to pick up the pieces when other things come up. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

While we will never be able to say 'thank you' enough or truly show our gratitude to all please know that we will 'pay it forward' as best we can. If ever there is something we can do to help we will.

God bless you all!

With more gratitude than I'll ever be able to express,
