5 Things That Every Farm Girl Should Know

1. Pray.

-Every farmer knows that you do more good kneeling down on your knees than sitting in the seat of the tractor. No matter how many hours you spend driving the tractor, it won’t do you a lick of good if you don’t talk to the man upstairs.

2. Be Flexible.

-We can’t control what life throws at us. Whether it be a hail storm or a drought, life tends to have a mind of its own. No matter how hard we cross our fingers or dance a “rain dance”, we don’t always get what we want. So, we must be flexible… We must be able to work with whatever life gives us.

3. Be a Handy WOman.

-If you’re a farmer, you have a toolbox. Its just understood. When the sprinkler is stuck, a gearbox is broken, a screw is missing… you need your tools handy. In life, you have to be prepared to grab your “tools” and go to fixing whatever it is that needs fixing. When you leave something broken, it only gets worse and you end up with a bigger mess.

4. Work the Ground.

-Our hearts are like a field. If we leave it unattended, weeds will begin to seed and grow. You have to maintain “the ground” to optimize your yields.

5. Be passionate.

– “Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.” – Confucius
