And while I wasn’t as excited like they were, it did bring back memories of when Tim was managing some livestock buildings. My first experiences of what it was really all about and what my life was becoming😳 And I wouldn’t change it for the world😍
I would help him load out and while Tim would be downing the coffee, I remember trying to sleep in his office, using coveralls as a pillow and chairs lined up for a bed…waiting for that 3am scheduled semi to back up…and waiting patiently for the truckers and Tim to stop chatting so that we could get it over and done with.
And while it was a dirty and difficult job, I did like being there with him…even if my “helping” was probably causing more work for him😜
We eventually switched over to cattle which is definitely more demanding due to the schedule and feedings throughout the days. But after six years of hard work and dedication…very few days off over the years and extremely challenging working situations…I am happy to share that Tim got one of the top dollar prices for the weight range this week at the sale barn making “the list”!🐄😉
Yeah, who knew I would ever get excited over something like this right?! But I am very proud of the work he does to provide for our family and the work he does to make sure the cattle stay healthy whether it be our own cows or whoever he is working for.
I am sure this seems silly and unimportant to many of you but to Tim, who has sacrificed time and sleep and energy…this is a nice acknowledgment! Especially since someone pointed out to him that prices haven’t been this high in six months so hopefully this will continue to help get his name out there for future sales!
Leah and Asher also took some time to go feed the ponies…
And the boys went on a bike ride…well kind of😍 While the last couple of days have been rainy and cold, we still took every opportunity to get outside when the sun was shining!
We are definitely ready for the nice weather to come and stay!
Tim always says I need to blog about cows because it’s in my title! Haha! So, there you have it…a blog about livestock. 🐷🐄
Praying for you all to have a safe and meaningful Easter weekend!
