One of my favorite bands is the Counting Crows and my favorite song of theirs is a “Long December”. When I hear that song I realize It’s been a long December and I am hoping maybe next year will go by faster than the last. I hear other people talk about how fast this past year went for them, but for me… time just seems to drag. When you are not doing what your heart desires, the days just seem longer. I just want to start farming now, but I know I can’t just yet and must be patient, that day will come soon enough.
As I keep wishing that day will get here fast, I keep telling myself to slow down and enjoy this time now… hold on to theses days before they pass. My life is really good right now, my marriage to my wife is going great and I love spending time and doing things with her everyday. My health is good with no issues to speak of, other then maybe losing some of these pounds that I have picked up over the holidays. We have really enjoyed spending time with family and friends who are dear to us this past holiday season, so what I am saying is my life couldn’t be any better except if I was farming now. I just need to keep reminding myself to savor and relish this time in my life, enjoy each day and look at this time as a gift. I have lived long enough on this earth to know, life doesn’t always go so well. I know there could be bad times again and I will look back on these days with fond memories.
So I am hoping this past year was as good to you as it was for us, but if this has been a long December for you and you are hoping next year will be better than the last, take heart, bad times don’t last forever.
As we look forward to planning what will do on the farm this coming year , my wife and I want to wish all of you well this New Year, and please enjoy this video of the Counting Crows “Long December”.
