Thoughts While Creating
Maybe she was 3 or 4?
Her first memory of spending time on the family farm was helping her Grandpa milk the cows. She remembers getting up before the sun and going out to the barn and watching in awe as her Dad and Grandpa started their morning chores.
But as she got older - through her teen years and into her college years she moved away both mentally and physically from the farm. Her college years led to a fancy and high paying job far away from the farm and the family. The death of her Grandpa brought her back to the farm.
Once back, she was provided with the opportunity to reflect on her life (to this point), and finally realized that it was more about family and tradition than fortunes. Three years ago she moved back and took the reins as her Dad and Mom couldn’t keep up with the farm. Now she spends her day with her parents, spouse, and kids taking care of what’s important in their lives. She has never looked back.
