Can make for family closeness.
Or sometimes not. I don’t know if it’s all in how you look at it, or, if it is as my wise mother told me once “It just means everything to feel like you both have your shoulders against the same rock and are pushing together.”
I am so fortunate to feel that My Farmer and I are pushing against the same rock together. And I like knowing that our children are watching us doing so. I watched my own parents shoulder their boulder through the 1980s (farm economy hell) and have benefited from their example every day of my life.
Also, it’s May Day tomorrow. Out of curiosity, does your family do anything special to celebrate?
