Our pig is a joy to keep and getting bigger by the day.
But, as I gather and care, I get this feeling that I could have done more. I should have done more. I get upset that those seeds never germinated, or the wild birds got into that patch, or we don't have chickens or goats, yet and we can't afford a barn yet.
I actually start thinking, "if this were the old days, we'd starve!"
Well, thank God it's not the old days and I can run to the grocery store!
And thank God for what we have accomplished just this year alone! Rabbits, a pig, two raised beds, new bushes, plants, an excellent compost heap and a garden that is thriving.
I need to remember this and times like these:
