Thank God I'm a Country Girl

I truly believe that some things are hardwired deep within a person. For me, one of those somethings is a love for country life. I began life in the country, live there now, and hope to continue here as long as life is within me.

Please don't get me wrong, there isn't anything "wrong" with town living. The conveniences of city life are handy, but for me personally, "a bad day in the country is better than a good month in town". That's just the way it is for me.

Loving country life isn't only my passion. Many others share the same fervor for living in remote locations with open sky and fresh breezes blowing through their hair. Not everyone who loves the country lives there though.Those city dwellers with country hearts are just as country as those few folks who long to boogie to the rushing staccato of urban life while waltzing to the slow strum of rural tempo are city. Also, no matter how many attempts by Colonel Redeemed to deny it is so, an individual can live in the country, work a country occupation, and still be a complete and utter "Townie". Sorry, son, it's true.

Because lovers of all things rural feel their passion strongly, I am considering including regular posts from a country/ranching view here at Abundance House.  To give readers a feel for the type of posts I am talking about, there will be one showing up here bright and early tomorrow. All I ask of you readers is for each of you to leave a comment voicing approval, or not, by sending me a yea or nay. That's it, nothing more. If the yeas have it, there will be more. If the nays carry, country posts won't show up on a regular basis.

Knowing how busy everyone is, I am sending out a HUGE thank you to all of you. Thank You SO MUCH for your yea or nay. Your help is greatly appreciated and we hope rewarded by your visits here at our house of abundant living.
