A letter to the moms and dads of rural kids
High Plains Journal
I hesitate to bring it up, but because we are friends I am going to lay it all out there. I know there are times when you look around and think, why am I doing all of this? Why am I making five trips to town today so I can farm, work, pick up from practice, go home to do chores and return for a 4-H meeting? Why do I neglect the messes at the farm and home so that I can go watch the game?
