It has been one of those mornings:
- the boy is upset his remote control helicopter won't fly right
- the middle got immunizations on Tuesday and swears she is still "dieing" today
-the oldest needs to go to the dr. for something minor and completely curable with antibiotics
-Chris has a million and one things to do including tearing up the floor in a farrowing barn and installing a new one before the next set of sows farrow, but is also still upset over the 5 gallon of paint he ran over with his truck and wasted - then the boy walked thru the paint and then walked thru the house!
- the kitchen is beyond disaster and disgusting
- the yard needs mowed but is brown, crunchy and on it's way to being dead - how that works I have no idea!
- WE NEED RAIN - although I was informed it wasn't going to do our crops much good now anyway!
Anyway I am sure you get my point without me going on and on!
But in the midst of all this I did sit down to check e-mail this morning (because that is what I do when I get overwhelmed - do something that is completely useless towards solving any of my problems!) and opened up an email requesting prayers be sent to North Dakota (yes now I am crying)! You see I have been blessed to be a part of The Real Farmwives of America, I say blessed because it is a privilege that I am a part of because I also have the privilege of living and working on a farm, these girls (yes I will always be a girl) are amazing, some live and work on a farm, some live and work on a farm and also work in agriculture promoting it but we all love our way of life and the industry! I'll be honest, I have not had the honor of meeting in person a lot of these girls but they all have blogs that I love and read, and it is funny how you feel you know someone from something like that (I hadn't expected that when I started this adventure) so today here is one I am asking that you check out, Wag'n Tales, they are a farm family in North Dakota who could use some prayers for their 2 year old son George - and if your not like me and put off the things that need done to hide in a corner and surf the net, just say a quick prayer - that works too and would be greatly appreciated!
So just like I tell my kids all the time, I think that God clearly said to me this morning:
"Suck it up, Man up, Jennifer get your balls out of your purse and put them on - a flightless helicopter, dirty kitchen and a wasted 5 gallon bucket of paint is minor"
Also I think I heard him say to put down the computer and just clean the kitchen or that may of been Chris!
