Kicked out!

We have just been told that we can't live on our farm anymore. Danny only took care of the farm part-time and they are looking for a full-time manager. That news has just shaken everything in our world. We got married on this farm and were looking forward to raising our children here. So this news is devastating.
I am upset because we have to leave but I am also upset for my husband. I know that he feels that he has let us down and this has just completely knocked the wind out of his sails.

So this is the first real test of our marraige. I have to stay strong and support my husband and we have to both work together to get to the silver lining of this cloud. I guess that is buying a farm of our own. We have always wanted to set up our own farm and I guess this has just forced us to move that plan forward. As scary as all that sounds - lots and lots of money that we don't have to be spent - it is also a little exciting. I have never lived in a house that I owned before. I have never been able to paint a wall or put up picture hooks.

So maybe this might just work out for the better....
