This is what a corn field, that I pass quite frequently, looks like today. We have been blessed this year with enough rain for it to reach this height. Last year, with the drought, the corn died before maturity.
Do you ever start to write a post and it goes in a different direction than you had planned? That is what happened again this morning.
My plan was to show the progression of a corn field from the beginning. Here is what the corn looked like the first time I noticed it in the field.
As I was editing the photos, I remembered a blog I follow, called Mooberry Farm Homesteading Journal. Julie, mother of eight, lives on a 20 acre farm with hubby and children. I hope you check out her blog. She gave me the idea of my post today, "Thankful Thursday".
A couple of weeks later, I drove by the same corn field. It had grown several inches....
These photos remind me so much about a busy life. I forgot about the corn field for many weeks. Then, one day as I drove by the same field, the corn had grown taller than me. The horizon was no longer visible.
So what am I writing about today? I hope my photos allow you some time to be thankful for all that is good in your life.
Life gets so busy sometimes we forget to take notice. And sometimes our problems can seen as daunting as this dense corn field. But, today, I choose to be thankful for the blue skies, the rain and the beautiful corn growing in that field....
