"Santa Anna"

I'm thankful on this 3rd day of November for this little girl and all the other moo's, large and small. Thankful that the bank is working with us and won't be taking them. While we have many more things that are weighing on our shoulders (like will be able to keep the farm, feed prices, bills). The knowledge that what we have worked for all these years isn't going to be taken from us is, is cause for Thanks and Praise.

From more 30 Days of Thanksgiving go HERE.

ps. promise to make up the first two days!!!


  1. Hey! I found you via Ann's 30 Days of Thanksgiving, which I'm following too. I absolutely love "Santa Ana" and your blog. I almost took the same background from Shabby Blogs the other day. I like it w/your blog, it's perfect! You'll be in my prayers about your farm and all. Oh, hang on! I'm looking forward to visiting you again. Thank you for your photos & humorous posts. Later, Jenn (PS drop by my blog too if you have a little reading time - I tend to be verbose. Can you tell? :) Jenn

  2. I'll be keeping you in my prayers! So happy your able to keep your gals! (I'm quite fond of their sweet, inquisitive faces too!)
    Nice to meet you-and blessings from the cabin!
    Claudia O.

  3. Ah, I'm glad you can keep the moos, too, Sara. I would miss them! And just take it one day at a time. Our Lord told us each day has enough trouble of its own. :)

  4. My gosh, your post has brought tears to my eyes. I, too, am thankful that you are not losing your home and your farm.

  5. Jenn... Thanks so much for the kind words and prayers. Much are needed these days! It's nice to meet you!!

    Claudia... It's nice to meet you also. Thank you for adding us to your prayers.

    GaGa... We are trying. :) Sometimes the days are just more than one can bear... one shouldn't worry, but we find ourselves doing just that, and then telling ourselves NOT to worry it's in God's hands and his time... I struggle with this one.

    Mimi... It's really just the cows that are safe. The farm... we don't know. We got into a BAD and I do mean BAD deal with a modular home dealership, contractor, lender... the banks won't refinance as they say it's FRAUD!!! Our attorney says no it's noooooooot, and even if it is you don't have $50,000 - $100,000 to go to court and it's a hard fight... So we are stuck at the moment, between a rock and a hard place. And no one is making a move. Sorry to go on... it's just we are starting on year 3 of this.
