Rejoice & Be Glad in It!!! 🤍
I’ve been a little MIA over the last week from the #marchfarmherchallenge ... but today is Pie Day ... which seems fitting right?!
“Feel Empowered” is today’s theme to share on ... I was racking my morning brain of what really makes me “fee empowering”... and I was coming up slightly empty handed. Because in all honesty here - I rarely have enough self confidence to do half the things I catch on camera. I’m just doing what needs done - if that makes sense?!
Most days around the farm - Jason sends me on my way & says “ you can do it” - even when I feel like “a complete train wreck waiting to happen”. But HE believes in me. Or he wouldn’t send me off in high dollar equipment - he needs the job done. And knows I’ll do it too because it’s Got to Get Done. Regardless of how much it makes me nervous- or I’m not as fast or as perfect as him. Heck he’s been doing it longer than me. He should have it down right?!
I think that’s what “empowered” me to even start this journey of sharing our farm story. It was HIM that keeps me “empowered to do it all”.
There’s days I get down right frustrated- because I’m doing more things than he ever had the hired hands do over the years. And I called him out on it the other night. I was sore. Tired and cranky. - his simple reply “but I trust YOU to get it done & I expect you to do it the way I know you can” ... those simple words could of been the most romantic thing he’s said in a long time.
It’s those little things that help to empower me to go to the next level in this farming world. In a “Mans Field” that isn’t so much just a man anymore but a partnership between a father/daughter - a mother/son or a husband/wife ... Farming is EMPOWERING!!!
Farming has become my biggest addiction yet / and most expensive next to owning a barrel horse I think.
When I want to toss the towel and say “I quit” he’s right there saying “you don’t got an option- let’s go”. If you’ve ever met Jas - you’ll know. He’s no slacker. If he even thinks you can do it - YOU’RE doing it. Because He believes in me.... so today ... My #empowering moment is coming from my best friend - my co partner - my farmer... and if thinks I can do it. Then so should I...
