Growing up on a small family farm, I learned the value of hard work. Applying that to my adult life can be difficult. Living in town and having the summers off as a teacher is different. But I value that sense of accomplishment from hard work. I've also found that hard work comes in many forms; relationships, love, God, and even fun. Mother of 3, sister of 8, woman of few words.
I'll have to work on that.
