Sometimes a picture can say more than words ever could. So what words come to mind when you see this?
If you are my trying-to-be-a-farmer-again husband, I probably would have to sensor you for about 10 minutes. David can create quite a flow of cuss words. I have even heard him create news ones that should be added to the dictionary.
The point is sometimes the picture tells you exactly what you need to know about our foray into farming. It has been a tough spring filled with the unexpected. You name it and it has gone wrong, or broken, or been rained on.
But what you may not see in this picture is that David keeps on going. I love that he perseveres. It’s one of his best qualities and one that he has passed on to our kids. No matter how many times he gets knocked down, David gets back up on the tractor.
He pulls it out of the current hole and heads off down a new row of the field. Even with Lyme disease, a broken collar bone, a sunburn, more equipment and tools laying in the field than beans and a never enough sleep. He just keeps pursuing this dream to take care of his family and to leave something for his kids.
I love that about him.
