The Giving of the Thanks

My Generation

November was a good run. Now what?

Published on: December 3, 2010
I have been overwhelmed by your generosity and response to my Thanks and Giving series last month. We used to joke about getting a flood of letter, which in general is so true. Believe it or not, we don’t get much mail here at Prairie Farmer. But I’ve been so encouraged by your emails, comments and the chats we’ve had in person.

So now it’s December. The first snow fell on our farm December 1 and though it was just a dusting, it still felt appropriate. Thanksgiving is behind us, and the holidays are upon us. And for this blog, now what? Any suggestions? What do you want to read? How often do you want to read it? I’m all ears.

Ya’ll have been wonderful and genuine and generous, and I very much appreciate it. There I go again…this giving thanks thing may be hard to give up. J

    You create a bond amongst your readers. Through your faith, your family, your photography,your friends and your neighbors. Through your life as a young farm family and your preservation of the ideals we all hope we share. Don't let the blog become a burden. Write when you are inspired not when you are required. My brother writes two different newspaper columns per week and has for many years. One of them is in 16 newspapers throughout the Midwest. I don't know how he does it but he does and I have never known him worry about it or anguish over it. I sense the same attitude in your writing. Keep up the good work and thank you for the time you spend on the blog and for Prairie Farmer. I am sure as a young farmer wife and mother of two, you have plenty of other things to do.

    Keith said it very well. I wholeheartedly agree with his gracious comments. You seem to be well blessed with inspirations. I've done enough writing to feel the anxiety of "What do I write about now?" Keep praying for inspirations. I like the human interest stories and the practicality of your thinking.
