Chapter Two...on the Prairie

There is no shortage of things to write about as I continue to travel the Back Roads on the Prairie.

Each year the Giant Reed, sometimes called Wild Cane, begins to bloom in August and September. The tall perennial grass will grow to 20 feet tall.

The two foot long, plume like panicles are quite showy, swaying back and forth with the prairie winds.

I try not to take anything for granted in this life that I live on the prairie, including something so common as the roadside plant life. It seems to come back each year so effortlessly.

We all have things around us that seem to be just there. Life has changed drastically for me in the last few months, but particularly the last few weeks.

As you know from reading my blog, the sale of the farm has been impending for some time. You may also know that I lost my mother only a few weeks ago.

This week, the father of my children has also died. My family is in mourning, as am I. Within just a few short weeks, the two people who most influenced the first 42 years of my life are gone.

And in all that sadness, the final papers on the farm were signed yesterday....the passing of the keys.

This Saturday will be the First Day, of Chapter Two, in the life of Meggie on the Prairie.

Life is Good......and God continues to bless me.

Meggie Mac


  1. Oh Meggie - I wish you every possible piece of good luck for Chapter 2! Sorry to read of your sadness - losing a parent is hard at any time and that combined with everything else that is happening in your life must be particularly difficult. Don't forget to give yourself a bit of pampering!

  2. Days of joy and days of mourning. Every thing has its time. I hope chapter two will be a happy time.


  3. Meggie I so feel for you. It does get easier, I speak from personal experience of mother and husband. Big Hug xx

  4. Oh Meggie! These life changes are so hard on us but Chapter 2 can be wonderful. Sending you hugs, Linda

  5. Meggie, my heart is with you as you turn the page to the next chapter. I remember seeing the tall grasses when I taught in Texas one August; I love watching how they swayed in the breeze. It reminded me of a welcoming wave to the area. Love you, XOXO

  6. You show wonderful strength as you face the future. When my mother died, I had a period where I felt like nothing mattered since we just die anyway. But there is far too much living to do to sustain that depressed thought as a way of life. Best wishes to you in the coming months.

  7. I am so sorry for the loss you and your family have experienced. I lost my grandmother just before Christmas last year and less than two weeks later, my uncle, who was such a positive force in the family's lives. Both were unexpected, although my grandmother had been ill for some time. Our entire family is still hurting over the loss, so I know how terrible it is to face too much tragedy in such a short time.

  8. I'm sorry for your family's loss. My best wishes to you as you enter this new chapter in your life. Hugs.

  9. I'm very sorry to hear about your losses! My deepest condolences. The passing of loved ones is probably the most difficult thing to endure. My prayers are with you and your family.

  10. So sad for you Meggie. I am sending hugs and thoughts your way!

  11. I am sending you lots of Hugs this morning. I hope it helps to know that others are thinking of you and your loss of your loved ones. I hope Chapter 2 will be lots of joy into your life. When God closes a door, he opens a window...just time will tell.

  12. I am so sorry for your losses. Hugs and prayers coming your way.
