Farm Fresh Eggs Made With Love


Farm Fresh Egg, A Chicken That Lays Eggs With Hearts on Them

Down on the farm with one amazing chicken that has the ability to lay eggs that have a sweet little heart stamped out on the shell. Have you ever seen anything so delightful?

Not only is it beautiful to see, it has a very special meaning: It’s an egg that keeps hope alive and brings peace to two families.

A little back history first: For those of you who don’t know I grew up in a very small village of under 1,000 people and where I’m from everyone knows everyone. While I was growing up there was a young couple with 4 kids who lived across the street. Of course that’s back in the day when neighbors were actually neighborly. Any who my Mom and the neighbor lady Barb became best of friends and when I became a young teen I babysat those 4 adorable children on a regular basis.

Time moves on and I grew up and moved out on my own. I met my hubby, got married, and had a son. The only daughter Barb had was Erin and she became my son’s babysitter when hubby and I golfed.

Since then Barb passed away to young as did my mom and Erin and I have stayed close. I do things with her boys and we fill a need in each other’s lives. We share a special bond when it comes to missing our mamas.

Erin and Barb always had a “heart” connection, and when Barb passed Erin always knew every time she saw a heart it was her mom reaching out to her and letting her know she was okay and that she loved Erin.

Right after my mom passed I went to the ocean very late, I looked up into the dark of night sky and witnessed the clouds part and form a heart. I quickly snapped a photo and text it to Erin. She said it was her mom letting me know she had my mom with here and they were together again.

I’m sure you’ve guessed by now I get my farm fresh eggs from Erin, and that beautiful heart on the egg is from her chicken. Pretty impressive right? I guarded that egg with my life for a week until I could get it back to Erin. She ended up poking a pinhole in the egg and blowing out its contents so she could keep it.

I hope this brings joy to your heart and life to your soul today, after all it’s Valentines Day and we all need a little LOVE!

    Thank you Dawn for sharing this post. You have said your heart still hurts with the loss of your Mom, but I see Erin and you strengthening each other. God is good all the time!

    1. Laura thank you so much for stopping by and sharing a kind word with me. I need to hear these things from time to time to keep myself moving forward in my grieving process.

  6. I also love hearts. When we had our daughter and named her she had an I in her name that I have always dotted with a heart. She has used it as her signature and now she has two girls of her own with an I in their name and has continued on the Tradition of the hearts in the signatures.
    Have a blessed hearty day.

  8. What a lovely reminder of our loved ones and sometimes God just lets these tokens of love happen for us to remember! I just saw a FB quote this week that says, ” Be the things you loved most about eh people who are gone.” –unknown We all need to let that one sink in for a while, not only for those who have passed, but also for those footprints we leave on their hearts when we’re gone. Have a a great weekend, Dawn!
