My Barnyard Blessings

While milking cows last night, my mind started making a list of all of the blessings I have received this week. Here are just a few.

I traveled to Kansas City, Missouri to mentor a group of Dairy Moms at a Midwest Dairy social media workshop; sharing ideas and stories, renewing friendships and creating new ones. Thank you for this blessing.

After 29 days in the hospital and a transitional care facility, my Dad is returning home tomorrow! Thank you for this blessing!

Welcome home Dad!

And lastly, God welcomed another Farmer to heaven this week, as my Uncle LaVerne died unexpectedly. I know God has wrapped him in His loving arms. Thank you for this blessing.

What if we woke up tomorrow with only the things 
we thanked God for today?


  1. Thanks for the reminder we should ALL appreciate every blessing, no matter how insignificant or major, sad or happy. The world would be a better place if more people considered their blessings.
    I consider my amazing, talented sister one of my most important blessings! Love you!

  2. Thanks for the beautiful comment.Love you too sis.
