Time - A Conversation as Old as Time

Is there ever enough time in a day? It's a question that's been bouncing around my head lately. I was out in a field with my son Ezdon this week, digging up drainage tiles on one of our farms. You see, there's a laundry list of tasks that need tackling before the fall harvest kicks into high gear. It's a busy time, to say the least.

As we worked, I couldn't help but chat with Ezdon about how different things are now compared to the days gone by. Back then, I had a demanding job off the farm, and yet somehow, I managed to get a good chunk of the work done. Looking back, I'm scratching my head, wondering where I found all that time and energy. But I guess that's life – it keeps moving, and we adapt.

Time has this funny way of filling up, no matter what. It doesn't matter if it's farm chores, fixing fences, or just spending time with the sheep. The days, they're always full. But here's the kicker, and it's something I've been pondering – time keeps going on, too. It doesn't stop. So yeah, it's vital to make the most of the time we have. That's for sure. But you know what else? There's no use driving ourselves crazy, stressing about running out of time for this or that.

Tomorrow is a new day, a fresh start. The sun rises, the sheep need tending, the newsletter needs writing, and the work begins again. That's the rhythm of life on our farm. It might sound a bit contradictory, but in the midst of the hustle and bustle, there's a reassuring constancy to the way time marches forward.

So, here's the scoop, right from the heart of this farm: we work hard, we cherish moments with our loved ones, like Ezdon, and above all, we remember that time, in all its infinite wisdom, keeps on moving. It gives us room to grow, to learn, and to appreciate every sunrise and every sunset.

Wishing you a day filled with enough time for all that matters most.

Your Farmer
