I value kindness. I prefer to live a simple life. I am a lifetime vegetarian who enjoys growing and preserving my own food. This summer I grew my own cabbage and made sauerkraut . It was so good that I can't wait to plant more cabbage in the spring.
I raise chickens to provide my family with fresh eggs. We don't need too many, so I give them to friends. The hens are happy, and get to run around outside on a regular basis and enjoy the sunshine.
My cats love to be around me. I have had quite a few since I was a young child. I have tamed more feral cats than I can count, and rescued (and hand fed) kittens galore. My kids were always bringing me kittens that were sick, dying, or abandoned. I have learned so much about them over the years. Yes, I am a crazy cat lady. :D
To me, the most important aspect of life, is the relationship I have with God. I know that His love for me will never fail, though I may fail Him. He is my Heavenly Father and He is intimately interested in everything about me.
