|Benjamin's Farm - Sue has everything at her farm except a pig|
I just love it when God reaches down and gives us a kiss on the cheek along with a smile. That is just what He did for Benjamin and me this week.We walked to the door two times to find unexpected boxes of "goodies" from two precious women.
We both have dreamed of a farm. Benjamin wants the animals. What I want and envision is a place to roam, be still and enjoy a garden with chickens. Our dreams became "virtual" through two blogging friends.
Sue of Pear Tree Lane Farmhouse sent Benjamin the farm animals and a tractor. To fulfill my love of home-made canned jam, she sent us two jars of hers. She also provided garlic for our suburban garden. Benjamin has adopted Sue and he climbs up on my lap to enjoy her blog on a regular basis. She has also allowed him to name some of her farm animals. If you don't know her....well, you should; she is a jewel. Sue has encouraged me in my spiritual walk more than once...sometimes beyond the blog post through emails. Thank you, Sue.
Leslie of Farm Fresh and I met at the beginning of my adventure into blog land. We emailed back and forth and got to know each other beyond the pages of our blog.
|Gifts to Benjamin from her kids.|
Her retro-kitchen is just a joy. So when she saw my kitchen and knew my desire for her farm life....well, she added to my kitchen and sent more "virtual" farm goodies. Her two little ones sent items to Benjamin also.
Her humor is shown in the "chicken poop" and "udder" lotion. She also sent seeds for my flower garden. She allowed me to dream even more as I looked through the magazine she sent.
To Leslie and Sue...you have made our day. We are both enjoying our "virtual" farm. Love you, girls!
