Thoughts from our heart

It is almost Thanksgiving and a time of year when we take some time to reflect on the gratitude in our hearts. I thought I would use this time to share with you, Dear Reader, some of the things that make us ever grateful and thankful to be here on Earth and especially here at Marsh Farm.

First, of course, has to be family (yes, we know you are reading this). We are both so very grateful to have families that we enjoy being with and that we get to spend time with throughout the year. This year we are especially grateful to have celebrated many things with our families, including a special wedding, travel, making Christmas cookies, playing games, visiting many fairs and festivals, spending quality campfire time, and eating many, many tacos! We love them all very much and are very thankful to have them in our lives.

We are also very lucky to have wonderful friends in our lives. One of the best things about our friends is that they are so very interesting and bring much joy, entertainment, and laughs to our lives. They have come into our lives in so many ways and we are so grateful to have met them on this journey. For all the laughs, support, date nights, stories, and squash squishing devices, we are thankful. So if you count us as friends, please know that we are full of gratitude for having you in our lives.

As you might have read in the last post, we have an adorable gang of critters that have turned this house into a (very furry) home. They bring so much joy and entertainment into our lives and we are thankful for them.

I know it might sound silly but we are truly grateful for the little things in life. It’s those things that really make life joyful and wonderous. From waiting for the flowers to come up in the spring, to using up an entire pencil (a favorite hobby), to going for lightening bug drives, these small joys are soul sustaining and we are thankful to be able to find these moments in this life.

Marsh Farm is a very special place to us and we feel really lucky and grateful to call it home. It is a place that we get to try and do some good with and for, and for that we are truly thankful. We are extra thankful for you sharing in this journey with us.

Finally, Dear Reader and Customers, we are thankful for you. We are thankful for getting to share our lives and creations with you. We are grateful that you take time out of your lives to read along and that you are willing to spend your money on the things that we make. It brings us great joy to be able to share with you and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

We hope you have a most wonderful and joyful Thanksgiving. May it be filled with family, friends, laughter and, maybe, some wonderfully awkward moments.

Gobble, Gobble,

Katrina and Susan
