spring morning

filed under: I Am Mommy on March 31, 2015

There’s something to be said for country people.

spring morning in Minnesota

I wasn’t one until I became one.

I didn’t know I appreciated still, cool, grey Spring mornings until I woke up enveloped in them.

I didn’t know that I would get such delight in seeing the ice thaw from the ponds or the perfect reflection of the landscape on their glassy tops.

I just didn’t know.

But I am learning.

And appreciating these quiet foggy mornings in the country, loving the peace they offer.

And the hope.

    Yes! Our time in our “dream” home on 64 acres in the Blue Ridge Mountains was heavenly. God had other plans for us, but oh, how we loved our time enjoying the beauty of the land. 🙂 And our 25 chickens and one mean rooster “Mr. Green Jeans” aka “Mr. Mean Jeans”. Do you have chickens?? PS–One day the rooster disappeared…hmmm? Well, when he starts attacking the women (as in me!) in the house, it is time to go.

    I can definitely appreciate what you’re saying here. I recently moved from central CT to farmland Indiana and, while I love the city, I am loving the slow pace and sprawling beauty here. Thank you for the reminder. And a lovely image.
