We've made it through this year and we'll see what this next one brings. Hopefully we can find it in ourselves to heal and come together, which is not easy. But it takes little steps, patience and most of all forgiveness. I don't say any of this from a place of preaching, more like from the fox hole. As I watch the campaign signs slowly, slowly, being taken down around our farm, either by human hands or the winter weather; I am reminded of what it used to look like. Just houses and land occupied by animals and people. I know the harsh feelings still pulse beneath the surface but we have to get on with it. Life keeps moving along.
