As the old saying goes: together we stand, divided we fall.
A little news: my daughter just moved back to N.C. Se always loved working on the farm, especially cropping tobacco. It’s kind of funny. She said “I want to do like the people from the north did, when I was young!” They would stop by the field where we were all sweaty and dirty and they’d watch for a few minutes, and then drive off in their nice cars, and crisp shorts and sun dresses. She said “I always wanted to know how it felt.” So now she said, “I think I’ll do it.” She was a number 1 farm girl for Mr. Buddy Simmons, Richard, and Gent Brewington. Well now! Memories there are nothing like them. They are much more fun when you share them with people who identify with you.
Let’s read some words to live by. There is a lot of meaning in these saying so think about them and store them in your mind and heart:

“I am what I am today because of the choices I made yesterday.” ~ Eleanor Roosevelt
“We are judged by what we finish, not by what we start.” ~ unknown
