Wholesome Greens and Beans Soup

As I sit here making dinner for my family, I realized how blessed I truly am.  I am making greens and beans soup on this cold night.  I made the chicken broth from scratch and canned it.  I also grew a whopping crop of kale this summer that I canned for the coming winter months.  I am grateful that I have the time to do these things for my husband, not only adding love to our food but healthy nutrition…
