Farming is dangerous business.
It seems especially dangerous when moving large,wide
equipment from field to field when it requires moving on
narrow country roads or entering a highway that is full of
vehicles that are not too happy to share the road with
a slower moving tractor.
One of my jobs this last week was to follow the tractor
and planter as we moved to the next field. I held my breath
a few times on the dirt road when we met a car or truck
but my fits of anxiety were worth it just getting to
enjoy the canopy of trees that shaded
this old country road.
I'm thankful for these moments of inspiration
provided by the beauty around us,
for the farmer that loves to plant a crop for his cows to enjoy,
for the curiosity of heifers when you open the gate
to the field next door!
