I received this email from reader, Dee in Las Cruces, and asked her if I could share it with you all.

"Debbie - Have been reading with interest how various folks came to The
Geranium Farm. What strikes me is that so many say that their story is
not rivetting or interesting or even unique - there's a message in that
somewhere - that we are all in the "day to day swim" but this latest
project of yours shows that we are certainly not in it alone - we have
many brothers and sisters in it with us, each one trying to swim his/her
best, day to day. This is a comfort.

Also, I think that, given the difficult and often disconnected times the
Episcopal church has gone through lately, this is a great way for us all
to stay connected nationally. What do we all really think? What do we
all really do with our days all over the US? What other activities are
going on in our dioceses? And my favorite personal one: Thank goodness
to hear from Alison Love in Richmond or near there who talks in the same
vein as I am thinking and she's "at home" - my home in Virginia -
thinking and enjoying and taking part in many of the same things I'm doing.

This is all a bunch of bigger side blessings, I think. Unlooked-for
gifts from our all-encompassing God who finds many diverse ways to fill
our needs and feed our souls." Dee

Dee makes a great point here. Everyone was writing their own little blurb at the same time, totally independent of each other, all over the US and in several other countries. And nearly everyone has the same view: we learned about Barbara and the Farm in a very ordinary way -- a long-time friend sent me my first eMo, even before the website was born.

One special aspect of the Farm is that everyone connected with it, especially Barbara, is an open, unpretentious person. The motto at the top of the website is "down-to-earth support for living" and every item posted there helps all of us do that. It's a great privilege to be connected to it directly.

And thanks to everyone who shared!
All Best,
Carol Stone
