6 Reasons Why I Love Living On A Farm
I grew up on a farm and learned so much from my parents and the animals. I still live on a farm and love it! Each day here on our farm is a open class room. I learn something new everyday. 🙂
Here are reasons why it’s still great to be a farmer despite the trials and tribulations of farming.
You Learn Respect for Weather
A drought has harsh repercussions for the farming world. Being aware of how the weather directly impacts the crops and livestock helps you appreciate the way of Mother Nature.
You hear birds singing, sprinklers turning, goats “BAAAA” and the sounds of a simple, beautifully innocent way of life.
It Demands Discipline and Hard Work
Certain things are just expected of you when you live on a farm. You wake up early to wade through mud and rain to get to the barn to feed hungry animals. You learn to drive a truck and tractor before you’ve hit puberty. You take pride in your contribution to the operation of farm and family.
You Learn to Be Handy
You are around handy people. You hear handy talk. You effortlessly become a handy person. We know the difference between a flat-head and a Philips screwdriver, as well as socket wrenches and a crescent wrenches, and you know how to hitch a trailer and change a tire. WOW!
Ain’t No Time for Sissies
You can’t be wimpy about things in the Farm life. Everyone keeps it moving and you do the same. You roll your sleeves up and prepare to get dirty.
Hubby and I go on dates on our own property. That might sound corny, but there is nothing more romantic than sipping a bottle (I mean a glass) of wine, 🙂 🙂 sitting outside enjoying each other’s company and watching the sun go down.
Hope you have a Blessed day!
I’m here for you!
