makingofahomehomestead on InstgramThese are my mom’s People. 💚 Your People will show up even when you are gone. They will come visit your kids and grandkids to check in on them, celebrate life’s triumphs with them, and talk about struggles with them. They are a constant, even when you are unable to be. I am so thankful for my mom’s People because last night, for those few hours of chatting, I felt so close to my mom. I could feel her in their strong embrace and hear her in their laughter. This. This is what life is all about. Find your people. Hold them close. 💚💚💚When you go to a work meeting and they assign a book by one of your favs, @brenebrown, as summer reading “homework” 🙌🏻😍💃🏽🤓 #livingmybestlife #lovewhatyoudo #courageinvulnerability #daretolead #rockriverymcaFront porches are my jam 💚 #homesteading #homestead #urbanhomestead #getoutside #neighborhood #community #frontstepsViolets and chives from the garden today 🌱 As always, thanks @taprootmag for the culinary inspiration. 💚 #taprootmagazine #taprootmakealong #homestead #homesteading #homesteadlife #urbanhomestead #growityourself #gardening #gardenloveWorking on diamanté poems today in language arts.
