A Thank You Note

To the Farm School and all those who make it possible,

Thank you for sharing the work of this year with me.

Thank you for the meals, and all the other kinds of nourishment.

Thank you for the invitation–and impetus–to stretch. Thank you for the rewards of doing so.

Thank you for the role modeling: in capability, in endurance, in sensitivity, in humor, in asking questions, in listening, in independence, in collaboration, in strength, in vulnerability.

Thank you for last year’s cordwood, and shelves of jarred tomatoes, and freezer full of raspberries to eat in winter.

Thank you for making me feel powerful.

Thank you for making me feel safe.

Thank you for your wit.

Thank you for your trust.

Thank you for your friendship.

 

Love,

Sophie
