A note with a single shadowy sunflower

We got our little postcard note from Lindentree farm today. I am so happy when I see that note in the mail. It's a little closure to the end of the last season and a glimmer of the season to come. It's a reminder of the peaceful, and not so peaceful early evenings on the farm collecting our portion of the harvest and trying to feed the kids, share the swing and toys and round them up for the ride home.

I need to think back on those evenings because they're little moments for me with the children and me outside with the grass, the weeds, and the food that remind me about the smaller things in life, hard work, and the job of raising something or someone.

That's all for now.
