Major Life Change

This weekend, Grampa Tom accepted a position as a combine driver for a custom harvest crew. He will be gone for several months over the summer so I will be on my own for the season. I’m gonna miss him, but I did it last year when he was sick so I know I can do it again ๐Ÿ™‚

Running around to all kinds of markets will be out though. I am planning to be open here all day on Fridays and Saturdays, so you all will just have to come to my house ๐Ÿ™‚

God Bless You All!

Update on Grampa Tom

Life has been crazy busy with Grampa Tom down. Hate to be so MIA from this blog, but it’s kinda low on the priority list right now ๐Ÿ™ย  I am going to try toย  post a list of menu possibilities once a week for anyone who might want us to deliver to their home.

Grampa Tom is slowly recovering. He had a set back with some infection in the incisions on his legs, but hopefully in a couple of weeks that will all be healed up.

He started cardiac rehab last week. His blood pressure has been really good since the surgery, but when he started the rehab, it shot way up. Don’t know why that is, but they put him on some blood pressure meds and it is back down. The meds really knocked him out the first day. He seems to be adjusting to them now, although he tires really easily.

He is able to wash eggs and do some little things around the house. Can’t wait till he can haul the 50# feed bags out to the chickens again! I am getting pretty strong though, I should probably keep doing itย  ๐Ÿ™‚

We have been so blessed by people who have stepped up to help. Several people have come to help plant and weed the gardens, lots of people have given money to help us through this difficult time and even more people have held us up in prayer!

Job 14:7 โ€œFor there is hope for a tree,
If it is cut down, that it will sprout again,
And that its tender shoots will not cease.

Grampa Tom may have been cut down, but a sapling that comes from a tree that has been cut down is often stronger than the original tree because of the large root supporting it. We are fortunate to have strong roots in God, in our family and in our community! Thank you for all you have done!
