I had this idea to honor my love for valentine's day here on my blog. I wanted to tell you all the mushy, wonderful ways in which Mr. Onion makes me glad to be his wife every day. I reflected on those qualities that make him a man I am honored to call mine and then I thought of a classic piece of oration which lately gained some serious press. When I hear this piece it brings tears to my eyes and an overwhelming pinch to my heart. It says it all so beautifully. This is my little salute to my hardworking, soft, yet strong, thoughtful and smart and smart mouthed, wonderful husband and to all those men out there who embody all that is good in this world.
God Made a Farmer by Paul Harvey 1978And on the eighth day, God looked down on his planned paradise and said, “I need a caretaker.” So God made a farmer.
God said, “I need somebody willing to get up before dawn, milk cows, work all day in the field, milk cows again, eat supper, then go to town and stay past midnight at a meeting of the school board.” So God made a farmer.
Happy Valentine's Day
