Missing old friends

"Make new friends but keep the old. One is silver, the other gold."


This saying hung on my parent's wall for years. The past two days I have had encounters with people I really love and admire. The golden people in my life. They know the real me, and don't run away screaming. A vivid reminder that friends are for life. Oh, how I DO long for more time in my days to just be with friends. But in the real world, my world, family and farm come first. Sigh.

Starting the New Year out Right

Today I am linking to my favorite author and encourager, Ann Voskamp. She is the author of the book 1,000 Gifts: A Dare to live Fully Right Where You Are. (If you click on the title it will take you to Amazon. That's where I purchased it.) Ann has an AMAZING blog and a unique style of writing. To me, her words are pictures. And sometime she keeps writing without pausing to take a breath. Just like me. And I love it.

If you are looking for a jump start on life I suggest you start here:
http://www.aholyexperience.com/2013/12/a-grace-plan-a-doable-life-change-plan-for-a-new-year-a-new-you-with-printable/ Her site has music playing, if it's too distracting, just click on the little pause button on the bottom left.

Take some time to explore her site. Make a plan. And try. Just breathe. The new year is a brand new blank page to write on. Joy.

Blessings to you from me and The Farmer
