We have hit several bumps in the road on the way to our homestead. It’s been quite frustrating to say the least and I’ve had more than a few moments of doubt that this will ever happen.
Lili and Naomi, on the other hand, are convinced we are moving to our homestead. Lili even asked me a couple of days ago if she can have her own chicken. Of course my answer was “yes.” Naomi doesn’t talk about the homestead nearly as much, but she soaks in all the information. I’m quite sure Lili will be the one helping with the animals. She talks about collecting eggs and milking the goats. Naomi showed me just how much she enjoys gardening this past summer, so I know I’ll have help in the garden.
Even though our homestead isn’t reality right now, I’m holding on to the dream.
The dream that I’ll have a few of these.
A flock of these
And maybe one of these to help watch after the goats and the chickens.
It’s a good dream. A really good dream that I have to believe will one day become reality. It’s just meant to be.
