Thankful Thursday

Today I'm thankful for, and greatly missing the family farm.
It wasn't so cool when I was younger, being all smelly and filled with random animals.
Something unexpected was always happening. Tractors interrupting your studies. Animals on the loose. Someone always wanted to give birth in the middle of the night. In a blizzard.
You could whatever you wanted on all that land. But only after your chores.
But then you grow up, bring your own children, and you realize that is the best part.
You also realize your youngest brother might be mildly insane.
