The Roots of my life go back as far as my Great Grandfather.  Gardening is a gene that has been passed down in my family from generation to generation.  It serves as a metaphor for life.  Deep strong roots keep you firmly grounded in tradition, passion and happiness!

For years, I have served as a helpful role to those seeking inspiration, help, or advice. In 2020,  I finally decided to own that role and be intentional about it. I started writing about my passions, my thoughts, and curious wonderings about our society. I founded A farm girls life! with a mission to give others a taste of what goes on in my mind, and it has been a wild success ever since.

Saturday Morning Blues!

Hey my friend's! How are you this fine snowy Saturday Morning? At least it's still snowy here and I think pretty much all across the United States! That's what I hear anyway, except Florida! I have been trying to convince my husband to go to the Florida Keys. He doesn't feel like he can leave the farm! But that's a whole different story! Yesterday my daughter had a day off work! So we decided to run away from home for a few hours and spend some Mother Daughter time! She has been craving Taco Bell 🔔 for a while now and the Taco Bell in our town closed. So we went to Fort Scott, a little town right across the Kansas Border. Of course their dining room was closed because of covid. I used to work at a Greenhouse in that town and I knew where their park was. I had always intended to take her over there and show here the park but had just never done it. The park was pretty in the snow and the road had been plowed out! It winds around past a little creek and beside a small lake. It is a very old park and is really pretty neat! After we ate we went to Walmart! Their Walmart carries things that ours doesn't. So she found a couple rugs for her house 🏠 and I got her some kitchen stuff! Then we went to the baby section! Yes my friend's my 19 yr old daughter is pregnant! She is due in July. Are we happy about this? Well, this is not exactly what we wanted for our 19 year old daughter! We were thinking College, career, marriage, then baby! I knew she was having sex with her boyfriend and I tried to get her on the 💊 pill. She refused to take it or at least didn't take it seriously! I finally realized after lots of reminding and literally handing it to her that I couldn't control the situation. So I stopped trying! It was a Christmas Surprise and I think her Dad and I were the last to know. I guess they were afraid to tell us. Their plan? The are fixing up what was my parents house and are planning to live there! They both have jobs! Not great jobs but they do have jobs! The thing is Samantha has been more focused on fixing up the house than she is on the baby! That's what yesterday was about. We don't know the sex yet but I wanted her to think about the fact that she is now responsible for someone else and will be for the rest of her life! So we picked out some Onesies, sleepers and and receiving blankets! All in neutral colors, which is not easy to do by the way! We stuck to green and gray! Well I think it might of worked too well! She left the house this morning and gave me a kind of sad look. Then when she got to work she called me and she was crying! It took me the next 5 minutes to calm her down. To reassure her that being emotional was part of being pregnant! That her life wasn't over. She will still have a chance to be young. That we will support her and I will babysit for her. Basically that her life wasn't over! So she calmed down and went to work! At least her boyfriend Gus is supportive! He even wants to get married but Sammy is dragging her feet. She is not ready to be married yet and I don't blame her! I certainly wasn't ready to be married at 19 much less have a baby! In my case the joke was on me because when I did get married I had 2 ectopic pregnancies and lost the ability to have children. As most of you know Sammy and her brother are adopted. So this is the way I see it. A child is never a mistake! Who am I or any of us for that matter, to question God's timing in bringing a new life into the world 🌎. A child is a gift and we are going to love him or her and support him or her. We will rejoice! We will thank God for another Grandchild! After all, I was the women who couldn't get pregnant. I was so consumed with longing back then! Just look at the family that God has blessed us with!
