Rise above and Believe

The beautiful Poppies come back every year, they always seem to bloom in the most difficult of weather, they endure the rain, wind and the occasional snow storm... Thier petals are like tissue paper, and the stems so long and fragile.. yet they rise up and bloom.

These last few days we have been up against some really tough weather, we have so many projects to complete in a really tight time frame... and it has seemed like insurmountable odds....  

So we have just persevered, today while the guys were out in the wind, I had to finish up the basement, it's dark and damp and even after we vaccumed last week.. there still alot of spiders.. so my job today was paint it WHITE... And it dawned on me down there... Just paint it white, get it bright, shed and spread all the light...  Stay on the line of possible... Believe in yourself and what you want and you will get it done.

So then I decided I might as well get outside and keep helping out with the salvage work, the task at hand required getting up high on a fallen roof building and pulling nails to get the tin roof... now those who know me know, I don't  like roofs or places I can fall off of.... but I did it!  I learned something new, saved some really cool materials and got stuff done!

 

Just get up there. 

Just get up there. 

Some times you just have to rail against the wind, scream, yell and get your frustrations out.

Keep pulling, keep pushing, hammer if you have too.   Do it 597 times... That's how many lead head nails came off the roof...

Conquer the fear and doubt.. put it behind you..

Believe that you can do whatever you need to.. my youngest son who is always the rock steady... said once, "you know why I don't worry to much mom?, Because so far we've made it thru every single very worst day thus far..." I know we'll make it thru this too.  What doesn't kill us makes us stronger.. so onwards and upwards

 

With all the old and custom things we've been repurposing here at the Farm,  Im really excited to k ow that at this time next week, we'll be back in AZ picking up the truck and getting Bonafide ready to roll home to Wyoming.

So just like this old door handle.. were ready to go to work again tomorrow and see what the day holds...  

Thanks for being part of this Bonafide Adventure, following along and believing in and supporting us... we hope that our journey inspires you to Believe..you can do anything you set you mind too. 

With love and Blessings,
