I’m sure everyone will describe and celebrate their father differently tomorrow. I look back and remember my father instilling a sense of independence and fearlessness in me. Through his eyes I believed I could do anything. As I look at my husband I see him instilling a sense of interdependence in our children and grandchildren. They too believe they can do anything but they have an awareness of uncontrollable conditions and an ability to be flexible that I had to learn later in life. Farming together we have learned that we all need each other because there are so many things we cannot control or change like the weather.
As we work through each day we realize this is the only time we will have this moment, this decision and this opportunity. Make the most of every moment this weekend and every day that follows because,
whether it’s tutus or tractors we all need each other.
Remember some one is always watching us. What are we teaching them?
