feeling so Blessed

So, I made the decision last year to really work on my food storage. We had very little in the way of food storage. You know, a few token bags of wheat, a little Barley, and rice. You know, we would be o.k. We would have enough. HA, yeah right. When I first sat down and really realized what we would NEED, I thought we would have to win the lottery to get to that point. We were so far behind the 8ball. We made the decision to do it. Get a food storage. We have come so far and are counting our blessings. In December, we had a fire in our house. We were able to take some of the money from our insurance payout and really get alot of our basics filled up for 1 year.

My goal this summer was to get alot of the non basics but still necessary to have a better food storage. more variety. We have been so blessed to have alot of free food given to us so it can grow. Apples seem to be blooming everywhere. I have been juicing and saucing up a storm. Today, I went to my friends mothers home and picked chokecherry's. I got almost 6 quarts of juice, to be made into Jelly and syrup later! SO greatful for that blessing. I am really excited about this canning season! I am loving it so far and greatful for the free food that I have been blessed with to help our food storage grow!

One thing that you mention, but I think I often overlook is the love and desire to do it. Canning is ALOT of work, and it takes a love and dedication or you wouldn't look for the free stuff or the stuff that is cheap. I am so happy to have helped in a little way. :)
