I wish this were fiction..what can I say…I'm a horrible commenter. So sorry about those knees and sight see-ers. Oh good grief. And I thought our house could get cold. Prayers always.
Sandra.. Hello!.. I've been away from blogging for a long time.. I actually had been trying the "YouTube" thing for a while but I missed my blog and reading blogs. Especially yours because I've always enjoyed your writing. Well, I finally started writing on mine again but switched over to WordPress because there's more traffic there than on Blogger.. Can't say why, I havent' a clue
Anyhow!.. I was hoping you had sold the farm and had moved here to Myrtle BEach to your cottage but I see you're still on the farm.. Are you still trying to sell?.. I am SO sorry about the knees!.. My gosh Sandra, the work you have to do each day and now with all that snow is SO much.. I honestly don't know how you do it.. I don't know how you keep up every day.. I couldn't handle a quarter of it…
I really did enjoy this post and I am once again enjoying your blog..
I hope you're well and safe tonight..
God Bless You
wow — Sandra, you are Wonder Woman! God bless you and all those friends and workers helping to keep everyone, and animals, safe and warm and fed. Tell your brother to read your blog!!
Blessings to you, and I do pray you get a good surgeon and have a successful surgery. xo Deborah
I think of yu and your animals and pray that you will be safe this winter. God keep you safe, warm and blessed.
This takes me back to many a snowy adventure when my hubby was here. Heat from the woodstove always felt so glorious after being out in the snow doing chores. I feel blessed to have those memories. Thanks for stirring them up again. My life has gotten pretty tame these days, but I hope to live on my kids' farm in the future, so I may yet have more of this kind of fun! 🙂 God bless you, dear!
I grumble and complain about living in the warm-winter suburbs of too many neighbors and dream about living like you do on a farm with animals and beautiful views, but then after I read a post like this one, I realize how much of a lazy wimp I am and I "ain't gettin' any younger". I'm afraid a winter like yours would do me in. May God richly bless you!!!
So sorry to hear about your ACL, Sandra…glad you had Adam to help you clear things out. Hope things settle down soon! xoxo
Thank you very much to tell about this all! Dear Sandra,I wish you the best, the best for you and for your animals and neighbours – a wonderful team! They are sent from God to you – and you to them. Here in radio we heard a lot about the blizzard. My thoughts are with you! Blessings, shelter courage and greetings!
This is as perfect as this ol' world gets – people helping people. Others helped you; you helped others. Love it!
Sandra, I admire you! You have the best attitude and the most giving spirit! I'm hoping that you will soon be able to have your knee repaired. Please be careful, my friend! ♥ PS send this post to your brother!
Keeping the farm running in good weather is a job, which just gets harder during the winter months. It's good that you have lots of folks around you who are willing and able to help and look out for you. I will never understand why anyone feels the need to get out in bad weather, be it snow or rain. I'm more than happy to stay put. So sorry to hear about your knee. I know the pain as I had surgery on my left knee when I was in 8th grade and have had problems with it ever since. Take care, Tammy
Thank goodness for good neighbours and kind people. I do hope that you will be OK and that your surgery will be soon and that you will have a good and swift recovery. Take care of yourself in the meantime. xx
God bless you dearly. I feel like a lazy bum! I also hope you find a good doctor to do your surgery…
I don't know how you do it. You are one amazing hard working woman!!!
Stay safe and warm….((Hugs))
thank goodness for awesome friends-I was wondering how you were making out in that storm-take care of You-most of all hugs
Unbelievable . . .
Oh My Goodness Woman . . .
You are a dynamo . . .
Resilient, helpful, kind, humble, giving, patient, faithful, faith-filled, fun, honest . . .
Injured, uncomfortable, in-pain, keeping on, true, selfless . . .
I could go on and on . . .
I got a smile out of this thought.
I counted 7-8 photos of fences in this post . . .
Perfect for Theresa who has a meme named Good Fences.
And my favorite fence look too . . . WIRE . . .
I hope your knees hold out and you get "fixed up" soon . . .
And I thought you were taking a blogging break . . .
Stay with us girl . . .
Love and hugs!
YOU dear lady ARE MY HERO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I knew your knee thing was something more than you thought it was. Drat. Farmgirl you work too hard but you know that already and I get it as you know there is no other choice. Once a hardworking farmer always a hardworking farmer.
It is wonderful all the help you have. Scary stuff happens and you have always handled it because you are one of the strongest women I know. Take care keep warm even though it sounds like you have that covered:) HUGS B
You are a wild, fun and amazing women. Hope that knee is fixed soon.
Sending love and prayers from Chicago.
Dear Sandra ~ I was going to email you this morning after seeing how bad the blizzard was in your area. I was really concerned for your safety. I was glad to see this post from you.
Bless your heart, your body, your giving/helping personality even when in pain.
Bless Adam and Jim and all who look out for each other.
I'm so glad Jesus pushed you out of your stuck position. Yay, Jesus.
You are in my thoughts and prayers.
It is 42 here and feels like it is 33 at 5:35 a.m. EST. That is COLD for us down here in s.e. FL. I've got my radiant heat heater on and it should warm this place up nicely. I'll be heading off to church later and the heater should work in the van. 🙂
Have a good day dear Sandra ~ FlowerLady
What a life you lead! How wonderful to have kindly neighbours to help out. And how wonderful that you were prepared to go to a rescue too.
Very glad you posted, Sandra – been thinking of you and yours. Wish I could help out with chores while you have ACL repaired. Take care. Stay warm – most of the time.
And thanks so much for your beautiful comment on my most recent blog post. Meant a lot.
PRAYING for you.
Well, I should've known you'd be out there helping others when you need help yourself. Torn ALC. Surgery. And, you're still in the loft throwing down food for your animals. You are a WONDER !!! Now, tell me…how do the horses hold up to this freezing weather and snow? I really want to know. I may be in Texas, but most of the horses around Houston are in a stable owned by some wealthy folks. Out on the real ranches that's not the case and in North & West Texas it gets very very very cold and windy. In Houston today we were about 45f sunny and clear. The dogs and I went for a long long walk and played around a bit. Now, they're buried in their deep & soft beds right here beside me. I love you, ladybug !!
I can't believe that you, manage all of that by yourself. You are my hero! I hope you have your surgery in Richmond so I can visit and meet you.
Someone should make a movie of your life, dear friend. Your life astounds me.
I'm thankful for the good people in your life and I pray that you will not do further damage to that knee. I almost don't know what else to say because you have to do what you're doing but there has got to be a limit to what one person can do and take.
God keep you and bless you and may He remind me to never again complain about losing our electricity yesterday!
I've had you on my mind in this storm. I keep you and your animals in my prayers.
God will keep you all safe.
Lord 'a mercy!
