Update on the farm

Good news on the homefront - the farm land auction was earlier this week and it won't all be lost just yet.. the eldest brother of the family couldn't stand to see it go cheaply to a stranger so he (going against his sisters that decided to sell in the first place) bought the farm house, barns and 7 acres. A local farmer bought another lot or two, and rumor has it that one of the local Amish families may have bought another lot. We were sure it would sell to another developer but by some stroke of luck it didn't, and the guy who bought the house earlier this summer with the intentions of making a $100,000 profit by reselling it in little chunks actually lost $5,000. Life is funny. Everyone in this small town breathed a big sigh of relief, happy to keep some resemblance of farm land for awhile longer.

Glad to hear that. Hopefully we have the same luck over here in Chippewa, but it's not looking so good.

that brings me so much joy. my eyes are full of tears and my face covered with a smile. we have so much to be thankful for. it is the little victories for good that we must hold close to our hearts.
