I found this image at MaryJanesFarm blog. It resonates with me. I come from a long line of women who possessed incredible strength. They lived a truly sustainable, independent life. They grew their own food, helped build sod homes which were later replaced with wood framed homes, cooked, baked, canned, butchered, planted, and birthed. You get the picture. I draw on their strength to this day.
Family stories and lessons from these women give me perspective. Perspective is sadly missing today. Our nation’s political leaders appear to be acting on short term victories rather than long term national gains. How short sighted and how damaging to our future. I believe we are in for a very political hot water year. I wonder how they’ll handle the hot water?
