Farmgirl Tantrums

by Scott Smith

I just stumbled across this article and found it very comforting. While I don’t have the excuse of 1200 visitors to my farm or a blight on my beloved cherry trees (I don’t even have cherry trees… yet) it’s good to know that even Mary Jane Butters, can have a bad day or a bad reaction to a frustrating situation. Even Mary Jane, “queen of all things genuine and organic,” doesn’t always have everything she needs on hand to keep things running smoothly. So when I am in a tizzy because I can’t get shelves hung or the steering wheel falls off the tractor I can remember, just because things aren’t running smoothly doesn’t mean I’m a failure at the farmgirl thing. It just means I need to take a moment and regroup.
