Dad’s birthday is coming up, so I’ve been going through photos for ideas of what to get him. I keep coming back to these, just a few of my favorites. These photos are so special to our family, but they’re too good not to share.
We lost this sweet boy this week. He was a little over two years old and developed bone cancer that spread way too quickly. He was head of squirrel patrol, master of shoe theft, a hard working farm boy, and most of all, a big loveable teddy bear. We will miss Teddy dearly. XO
UPDATE: As featured in Superbowl XLVII on February 3, 2013, here is the beloved Dodge commercial featuring Paul Harvey’s speech, God Made a Farmer:
On Ram Trucks’ website, it says a donation will be made for every video share on Facebook and Twitter, in effort to raise $1 million to support FFA and “assist in local hunger and educational programs.” Share it!!
ORIGINAL POST: (make sure to watch this one too – it’s the full speech with some really cute, funny parts about farmer’s wives)
Anyone who grew up on a farm or knows someone tied to the farming industry can identify with this incredible speech from Paul Harvey at the 1978 National F.F.A. Convention. Hard work, strong values, long days and a commitment to the land and everything that lives on it: this pretty much sums it all up, and reminds me why being raised on a farm has been such a privilege.
From Farm Videos: We have been told that Paul Harvey gave this speech at the 1978 National F.F.A. Convention and liked it, so we developed the video with pictures of friends and family. It is a positive message for the non farming audience as well as a thanks to our farmers. This video is dedicated to farmers, both past and present who have endured to provide our safe, affordable and abundant food.
