OK so I finally posted!! Well it has been soooo busy around here. As I have told most of you, this is the busiest time of the year for my husband and I. From Thanksgiving until about the first week of January..well we are wide open! Our pecan crop is not as big as last years but we still have plenty to do. We dont get to enjoy Christmas like everyone else because we are too busy with the harvest, our regular jobs, and well....just life in general. Oh course we celebrate the birth of our LORD JESUS but we just dont have the time for all the "doings" this season brings. Many of my friends and relatives have no idea how hectic it is for us and many turn their noses up when I say "we dont have time for that at Christmas". It takes them being here on a harvest day to see what we are doing and even then they cant see the big picture. We had no idea it would be like that when we planted these trees but it is a choice we made and I think it was a wise investment for my husband and I's future and not to mention our childrens future. I am not a shopper, I'm not much of a party person, and I am really not much on decorating espc. at Christmas. To be honest, I'm not much of a gift giver at Christmas either. I make it my practice to give through out the year and I dont like being tied down to the idea that I have to give something at Christmas just to say I gave something. Are yall screaming "Bah Humbug" at me, lol! Anyway....I enjoy being out in the field during pecan/Christmas season.....I get to marvel at what the CREATOR has done out here on the small area of the world that HE has so graciously allowed me to live on and be a part of. I so love where I live and I cant help but be thankful for THE BIRTH that gave me the freedom to live like I do and the Grace that will allow me to enter into HIS KINGDOM one day. HE is so good to me!!!!!!
My boys have been very helpful to us this season. You will see in the posts I made earlier today some of what has kept us so busy around here. So dont think I have fallen off the face of the earth...I'm here! I do miss all of yall terribly....I wonder what my blogging friends are doing ( Waving at you Jen, Flora, Clara, Mouse, Marcy, Patty and my OFT friends!). I will be back in the saddle soon! In the mean time.....warm yourself by the fire in between Christmas doings....boy aren't we blessed!!
