To us, family means putting your arms around each other and being there.
It is hard to believe November has drawn to an end already. Thirty days have come and gone since I started this year's look at all the blessings in my life. There have been good days and bad days along the way, but through it all i sought to see the gifts I have been given.
Today was a day of highs and lows. The Geek treated me to an early Christmas present --- a new phone. I spent much of the day trying to figure out my new "toy" --- not too sure you can teach an old hen new tricks! Thank goodness for Boy Wonder or I would never have made the progress I did.
The day ended on a sad note when we discovered the Munchkin's pet rabbit had died. She was heartbroken --- especially since earlier this week a favorite pet chicken died. Losing two pets in one week has cast a bit of a shadow of sadness on the farm. I am so grateful the thrill of the holiday season may work its magic and lighten my chicklets' mood in the days to come.
