A Break in Normal

☆☆“Health is not valued until sickness comes.” ~Thomas Fuller☆☆

As ranchers, our work is up, down, and influenced strongly by people who have never done it, so an open, grateful heart dedicated to a bigger purpose is required. Yet, even we who are grateful take pieces of our life for granted.

We weathered the April 13 blizzard fairly well. What could have been tremendous loss was not. We gave thanks, rejoiced, prayed for those who didn’t fare as well and went back to work.

Then, instead of our herd falling sick due to storm complications, someone else was taken down…ME!

As we finished barn chores on April 19, I had a freak accident, which resulted in my right ankle being dislocated and shattered🙁

Seven days on the couch, three hours of surgery, and the perfect mix of pain pills mean I’ve got 14 more days on the couch, nine screws, one plate, and weeks of changed plans to contemplate!

Our bump in the road is minor and inconvenient; it is also a gift of time and perspective. Prayers for patience, purpose, and growth are appreciated!❤
