The 3 good things rule: In this house when I have had it up to here with someone's persistent complaining they must list three good things that they have experienced in the last 24 hours!
So while my 3 things didn't happen in the last 24 hours they did happen within the last 5 days - 3 of my favorite people doing things that amaze me - while these 3 can destory a house in a matter of minutes, don't always put their plates in the sink after supper, never have clean rooms, leave dirty clothes all over the house, don't take their boots off in the garage, leave 4 wheelers sitting outside instead of in the garage, roll their eyes and moan when I ask for help in the house, can't use a trash can to save their lives - their work ethic is amazing!
We weaned and brought this steer home a week ago off pasture -every night after school, homework and FFA commitments she rinses, brushes & dry's him - she broke him by herself!
Friday night at 10pm Chris calls from the hog barns and says he has a sow in trouble giving birth - Chris and I both try to help her but our arms & hands are too big to do any good - my 13 year old girl grabbed a sleeve and never hesitated one second!
After school the other day the boy was helping get the combine ready to go and Chris looked at me and said "I need you to help me sweep out a bin"! The boy jumped off the combine and said "I'll do it Mom you stand outside and listen for the buzzer!"
