    If it weren't for you all, I would have given up more than once. But your words of encouragement and your prayers renewed my strength. It is so heart warming to know that there are people out there who are behind you and rooting for your success. So I'm sending out a big hug and much love to all of you. :)

    Sandra I have spoken of you, too! I have a friend who is about to lose her home and I know a man who will finance a piece of property for her and it has a cabin with a loft, much like yours, already on it. She said she didn't know how she could live in that and I said, "Let me tell you a little story about a lady and her 2 kids and her goats!"
    You are a shining example of what a strong, right-thinking person can do when she puts her mind to it and has a strong faith.
    I've learned so much from you just from what you share with us, so that hug goes right back to you from lil 'ole me here in Kansas.

    Sandra....
    We would like to thank you right back. You have taught us how to persevere and keep on keeping on through the hard times.
    But then again that's what friends are for right...there for each other when we need them. I pray for you, you pray for me. Sharing joys as well as sorrows. That's what homesteading friends do for each other.

    Hugs to you, too!

    Whether you know it or not - we talk about you often to other non-homesteaders and family members. We tell them of your struggles and sacrifices and your dedication to those you love so deeply. We hold you up as a hero and a role model that others might examine their priorities and learn to be true to themselves and seek a simpler, more meaningful way of life.

    With or without goats, you are a shining example of what the Homesteading Spirit is all about. And we are better for knowing you.

    I copied what Wind in Her Hair said as I could have said anything else. God Bless you. With lots of HHHHHHHHHHHUUUUUUUUUGGGGGGGGGSSSS.

    I'd love to be able to hug you right back in person. When I have a day where something doesn't go right and I start to feel sorry for myself I stop and think of all you've been through and how you always see the glass as half full.

    I remember a while back you had posted pics of your cabin, I showed my husband and said "see, that is all you need". You have inspired us to live simpler so we could live fuller.

    I'm glad the encouragement from the board has helped you. :)

    But if you weren't the strong woman that you are, no amount of encouragement would have made a bit of difference. You're tough.

    You say that we encourage you, but you encourage us even more by doing everything you do. You have an unbelievable amount of strength.

    Thank you for sharing.

    Thank you all so much. I wasn't bucking for compliments, but I sure appreciate your faith in me and what I'm trying to accomplish. And Jassy, I have an extra big hug just for you. I hope it lifts you up.
