10 Years Ago Part 2

10 years ago when we finally brought the milkman home safe and sound from Montana He wasn't allowed to work. A Farmer not allowed to work is like telling a fish it is not allowed to swim. Impossible! But he was told by his doctor that if he didn't do what he was told him it could be life or death so He obeyed! Thankfully, the milkman was born and raised in a VERY tight knit community. And by tight knit I am seriously saying that in some way everyone is related. You think I'm kidding, I'm not! So what happens when a farmer is told he can't work and yet he has crops out in the field that have to be harvested? Everyone comes together!! Seriously 1 big day of work with 5 combines, 8 grain trucks, and a bunch of amazing men and harvest was completed in record time. 
The press even heard about the milkman's story and came a wrote a article about it in our local paper. 

 Of course we couldn't let the men work hard without making them lunch so my sweet friends Kris and DeAnn along with our kiddos became the modern day chuck wagon and took lunch out to each one of the guys thanking them for all of their hard work.

 It was a VERY dirty job but not 1 of these hard working men ever complained. They just kept working with a big ole smile on their faces.

 At the end of the day corn harvest was completed. What all of these amazing gentlemen accomplished in 1 day would have taken the milkman a week to get done. We were so grateful for each one of them and how they all came together as a team. Each one of those men and so many other people during that time showed us what an example of Jesus looks like. Helping your brother/sister in need, loving each other and taking care of each other that is what Jesus tells us to do. But, the best part about this terrible time in our lives was seeing how everyone came together, it didn't matter if you had a different opinion about something or didn't see the world in the same way. Everyone just loved each other and worked together and made the world or at least our world a VERY better place and for that we will ALWAYS be grateful!
