It is yet another beautiful day, a day in which to count your blessings. As I ride around the farm on my trusty Big Red (Honda motor bike), the sun is shining, it is neither to hot nor too cold and a gentle breeze brushes past me, how could life get any better. I am out looking for weeds as I check the lambing ewes and the heifer who hasn't calved yet.
In my previous job as a nurse, I was stuck inside all day, mostly all night, and didn't get to experience the blue sky and breezes. I took time off from nursing to have a break and see if we could manage without my income. It has been a very positive experience so far. I am needed more than ever at home and have had the kids staying for eight months while they built their house. I would not have managed them here if I had been working. The stress levels have fallen and everyone is much happier. Money is not everything in this world.
