After seven years of caring for my mother in town, I'm back on the farm. A homeschool teacher starting the 10th year, my focus on other things has changed, especially after my sojourn in town. While I used to be a full time farmer before the move, now that I'm back I'm content to be a teacher, wife, mother, and small scale homesteader. Teaching is taking up much more of my time now, and I feel that's a worthwhile investment.

My goal for this year: move more, grow more healthy food, eat intentionally. And mostly, TAKE THE ADVENTURE! Happiness is a choice, success is a choice, not an event. It's not in circumstances, but in what you choose to do with them. Each day is a gift, live it to the fullest!

Member Since: 2/26/2008

Fitness Minutes: 12,622

My Goals:
1. For 2008, I've decided to quit complaining about what I can't do, and do what I can!

For 2009, I've decided to take action against those things that are holding me back. Those things I thought I couldn't do, by breaking them down into things I can choose to do.

2010: Life is an adventure, do what you can!

2011: JUST DO IT! This is the year to put together what I've learned, and see progress in the right direction!

2. Long term, I want to be able to hike the Appalachian Trail with my husband.

My Program:
1. Mentally: do things to stimulate the mind. Choose to do one "hard" thing each day, and get it done.

2. Physically:
walk more
watch what I eat

3. Spiritually: Christianity was never meant to be a religion, it is a relationship. My ultimate goal is to grow stronger and closer in the relationship with my Lord. To grow in love with Him who is Love.

Personal Information:
I love the woods, country living, herbs, fiber arts (spinning, quilts, etc.), hiking, camping, and nature in general.

Other Information:
I heard one definition of success from William Feather, "Success seems to be largely a matter of hanging on after others have let go." Don't give up, even when the going seems slow. Little nuts don't become mighty oaks in a day, or a year, or a decade. But what they lack in speed, they make up for in persistence! So, we're not going to give up!

    Thank you for the Spark goodie. That was so thoughtful of you. I enjoy reading of your many adventures on the farm. Awhile ago when you were still taking care of your mom, you posted that your son and you made homemade crackers. I never thought about trying to make crackers. I found recipes here on Spark that I might try. You are always doing amazing things.

    To be honest the healing has started. I used to have numbness and tingling in my legs from peripheral neuropathy and it's gone. Dr. Kickhaver adjusted me and voila it went away. I am very ecstatic about that. I told him today and he hit a home run with me in my book. emoticon

    Thanks for your comments on my blog. It will keep me on the straight and narrow to know that someone else agrees and is doing the same thing. I think he has a point and I certainly have been going against what he suggests, with bad results. I might have a chance to turn things around.
