This is a photo of Keith and his kid brother, Daryl working with calves. Some people would say that they were just kids, playing. Regardless, their muscles and minds were hard at work. And such experiences also built strong work ethics.
Yesterday, Keith helped his parents load their annual shipment of calves. Afterwards, Keith realized that he’d been doing it for damn-near, fifty years. That meant that his parents have been doing it about seventy.
As I watched the cattle truck pull away, I also watched Keith and his parents. There were no frowns or words of frustration. Instead, they smiled. Without words, they celebrated another year of hard work and satisfaction in a job well done.
