Date Night

“Work is not man’s punishment.
It is his reward, his strength, his pleasure.” ~George Sand

20180814_201141Our kiddos are off enjoying fun, memorable times in the city at cousin camp. Though I remain quite useless in manual labor, it was a beautiful night to visit with the rancher as I drove while he loaded square bales! •

With a busy, growing family and a long list of ranch work, these are among the most stressful days of our life. It’s too easy to get lost in the hustle…to forget about extending kindness to each other…to enjoy even the chaotic moments. •

Hopefully, our kids come home refreshed, maybe even invigorated, by their change of scenery. In the meantime, the rancher will continue his days of manual labor; I’ll work to meet end-of-week deadlines, and maybe–just maybe–when our little family jumps back into the daily grind, we’ll do it with a bit more thought, a touch more grace, and a dash more respect.
