Chasing Rainbows

The news of the last week has been grim and dealing with how our new normal is with social distancing and uncertainty is draining. The most depressing part for us has been the hoarding and the bare shelves at the grocery store.

Life on the farm goes on. We fall into the category of “we’ve been training for this for our whole lives” considering how many people we see on a regular basis. With grass growing and the kids home it nearly seems like summer with the exception of some online school work.

This morning after breakfast as I went back out to feed a slow growing rainbow crossed the farm. I drove from spot to spot to catch a better glimpse before it faded from view.

Whether we see some light at the end of the tunnel by Easter or not, this too will eventually pass. Let’s not forget to find hope and joy in the things around us.

  1. Your photo made me smile! Good to hear from you — I’ve missed your posts. Not very spring-like here in NH, but our recent 8 inches of snow is melting and I did get my early peas planted before the storm hit. With luck, we’ll get a good first crop with enough time for a second planting in August. “Who plants a seed beneath the sod and stands to wait believes in God.” Keep the faith!

    1. Thank you. Growing America keeps accepting everything I’ve written lately that I haven’t had anything to keep for myself. Some in my house would love 8″ of snow.
      What an apropos statement. We will keep the faith here!
