There is something about the country that gets down into your soul, plants like a seed, and grows until its roots can’t be pulled by anyone or anything. There’s a serenity in the woods that you can’t explain, a calm that comes from nothing except tranquil animals in an evening pasture.
And as much as I try, I will never be able to fully explain what it’s like to plant myself next to my animals or in my garden. For many, this life will never really make sense. And that’s ok.
But maybe, for a moment, you can follow me into my pastures, and maybe, for a moment, you will understand why the aches and pains of the ranch are worth it. Every. Single. Time.
This is a place that gives abundantly and takes away pieces of your heart.
