April 3, 2013, just after moving home (with my kids), my Dad had me
follow him across the farm to where a tree had been cut down.
When we arrived he handed me sledgehammer and a wedge; then told me to “learn how strong you really are.”
After I split the log up he said “document this, so you never forget how strong you are and where you get that strength from.”
Every hard day, I try to remember that day and the lessons I learned:
* Carry the biggest hammer you can swing.
* Your arms will wear out, but your heart will keep you going.
* My Dad is my Cheerleader no matter what.
* I am not a lumberjack.
