Hi all - I hope you will find the time to read this.
I keep thinking about the 3500+ of you who follow my crazy farm page, how thankful I am for each and every one of you and how I think of you all as family. Since I have this platform to say something loud, and reach many of you, I am writing to send you ALL thoughts of health, happiness, goodness and peace during these trying times.
I hope we will all remember to breathe deep & utilize this time at home with family to the fullest. Spend some quality time outside on the farm with your chickens and let’s think of our ‘nest’ as half full, not half empty. It feels like a tall order, but I believe we can get through this - together.
I hope to keep the lighthearted and funny videos coming, maybe a few more than usual as I think we all can use some distraction. I want to stay connected to you all during this trying time, and if just one clip of this crazy girl talking to her chickens can make you giggle, or say “awe”, then I am all in. I do want to be sure you know that by posting any quirky videos, I am not being insensitive to the scary reality around us, I simply feel it is imperative to keep smiling and remember there is still good in the world right now. I only know we need each other more than ever.
Thank you for taking the time to read this. I ask you all - as my extended family flock - to stay safe, make good choices, and choose to be an example for others to follow. Please never forget that fear is temporary, but hope is forever.
All the best in love and health,
Gretchen (and Minime 🙂)
