In 2020 I was pregnant during COVID and had a biopsy on a thyroid nodule which back suspicious for cancer. Scared for my health and my kids future… we took the plunge and moved to our farm to homestead. February 2021, I had little Zoey Marie, and in June of 2021 I had total thyroidectomy which revealed two forms of cancer in my nodule. I was scared of this diagnosis. People would cry to me about my diagnosis. Which definitely was not what I needed…But the garden brought me peace and refuge. And God planted a seed in my heart to start our flower farm. January of 2022 I had radiation and had to be separated from humans and animals. I was literally radioactive ☢️ But I was able to tend my little seedlings which kept me sane during this time of isolation. I kept myself busy by reading about gardening and homesteading. It’s crazy how a pandemic and health issues will bring clarity to your actual wants and needs in this life. I’ve never been more sure about what I wanted to do with myself. In 2022 my body scan came back negative for any cancer. One more scan later this year and I’m praying for God’s healing.
My flower farm is my legacy and my children will have memories of running through rows of flowers. When they catch wind of sweet peas in the air, I know they’ll be transported back in time. This is what I can give to them. The seed sown in my heart will multiply within theirs, because “that’s what seeds do they multiply” (Roots & Refuge).
