    This is beautiful! I love how you tell the story and I love the gratitude in you and your husband. Thank you for this.

  2. Your words are always so beautifully crafted!

    1. Thanks, Jess. 🙂 I love telling the stories of everyday life. It makes me happy (and helps me be on the look-out for beauty!).

  3. Just beautiful, Natasha, and I loved the ended, too. My family was never serious about making maple syrup, but we would almost alway tap a few trees and boil down a few pints of syrup just for the fun of it.

    1. We just started three years ago. Our sugar bush is large enough to do about four hundred taps but we usually do about eighty. If we get tubing, maybe we’ll do more but otherwise we don’t have time to get all the buckets.

  4. I have always wanted to do this. But no sugar maples down this far south…as far as I know! 🙂

    1. Do you have birch trees? I hear you can make a birch syrup that isn’t quite as sweet but still good…

    1. Thanks for the encouragement! I’ve been loving how God has shown his presence in the everyday… May you feel him today. <3

    1. So glad you enjoyed it. I have been on a mission lately to watch for God’s presence in everyday life. Isn’t it wonderful how he is everywhere?
