Our Love Story

When I was a chubby third-grader, my parents drug me to some picnic. You know, the lame ones your parents insist you attend. I didn’t want to go. Better options were out there. But, then again, there was a lake. At least I could throw rocks and could collect snails.

Turns out, a young-blonde, blue-eyed boy from the other side of the state had the same experience. Dragged to the picnic. Too young to stay home. Too old for the event to be cool.

So. There we sat.

Eating cheeseburgers, pickles, Grandma’s salads, potato chips, and delicious blue-ribbon brownies. And we drank orange Crush pop.

I will never forget the taste of that Crush. It’s still one of my guilty pleasures.

Elementary turned to junior high. And those awkward years turned to high school. And soon, both of those young kids were in their last year of college.

Another picnic.
Another cheeseburger.
More pickles and chips and a caffeine-free Diet Pepsi.
And a different picnic bench.

But, the same Crush.

His smile was the brightest and biggest I had ever seen.
And a heart to match.
And over the next few months, we ate more cheeseburgers.
Just the two of us.
We had a few picnics in the park.
And decided that if we spent a lifetime together, it might not be long enough to share all that we wanted to share.
And we fell in love.
And I knew it was the love I waited my entire life to meet.

And… that is
Our love story.

It’s pretty beautiful how it all happened, actually.
Kinda romantic.
Full of blessings. Blessed beyond blessed.
Twenty years of marriage.
Four sons.
A house to call home.

We’ve learned life is not always a picnic in the park.
Life is certainly not perfect. I know our marriage isn’t.
I’ve made some bad mistakes.
He has too.

But, at the end of the day, we stay on one bench.
We’re devoted to one another.
There have been bad times, but many, many more good times.
We’ve learned to appreciate our differences.
And when times are tough, we’re learned to cling to hope. To Him.

And every day, we renew our commitment to each other.
And, we thank God for the gift of each other and the joy of loving, and to be loved.


Meet my 5 Guys.
I’d like to think they named that cheeseburger place after us. You know, 5 Guys. Especially since cheeseburgers are the core of our beginning. But, sorry I can’t validate the 5 Guy thing. We do, however, sit down for home-cooked family meals, and we clean the kitchen. Together.

It’s rough. Rowdy. We allow wrestling, we encourage practicing basketball handling skills in our kitchen during the winter. But dodge ball and football games belong downstairs. We’ve learned baseballs dimple doors and floors; hard-thrown ping pong balls can too.

But, when the commotion quiets, and I see them help each other. I know the fight is won. The commotion is temporary. It’s not how we get knocked down – it’s who will help you up.

My Guys know family. The push, the pull, the sacrifice, the support.

In 2010, the Guys opened a pick-your-own pumpkin patch. Our sons have learned so much about the Business of Life. On the farm. In the family. In their heart.

Working gloves don’t always prevent blisters.
Weeds invade.
Water is scarce.
A killing frost can take your entire crop.

So they’ve learned to replant. And have hope.
To weed – always remembering to get to the root of the problem.
They’ve learned to solve problems, and satisfy customers.
The Guys have learned that the Business of Life can be heartbreaking.
It’s tempting to quit.
Or we can go strong, harder, and with more conviction than ever before.
Because perseverance wins.

Their choice.

Our Farm

We are a farming family. It’s where our kids learn that work gloves might not prevent blisters, and callused hands are earned. You know what really jazzes us? Just picturing you around your table. Laughing. Bonding. Passing the food. Even your spilled milk makes us smile.

Farmers put everything we own under the skies. In the hands of Mother Nature. Small seeds – with big hope. We tend to each field. We want you to long a long, healthy life. So, we take great pride in every seed that becomes your food.

My pantry has flour. Yours does too.
Mine comes from a farmer’s field. Yours too.
With farm families, everyone has a responsibility. It takes everyone at their best, on their toes, and devoted to the big picture. You know what gigs farmers? The roar of the machines, the smell of a timely rain, and the tiny developments of the plant – that’s cool. And every wheat load I haul with my Big Rig – you stock your pantry.
That’s cool, too.

You know what else really gigs me personally? Nabbing a bucket of wheat from the back of the truck and taking it home to grind it. And mixing a batch of the most delicious, moist, beautiful, heavenly, delightful wheat buns you’ve ever tasted. Certified delicious. Endorsed by countless taste testers.

Your bread comes from our spring wheat. Your delicious pasta is made from a beautiful head of Durum wheat. And when you serve a pot of warm soup on a chilly winter night – may those lentils refresh you. May the lentil brownies delight you. And the corn and peas enrich you. We want to you enjoy a full plate!

And, as everything in life, it starts with a small seed. Sowed with hope. Faith. Trust.

My heart loves in a big way...

  • Chocolate. Milk. Dark. White. Creamy. I don’t discriminate.
  • My family. Immediate. Extended. Near. Far. They have my heart.
  • Playing piano full of feelings, full of changes.
  • Winning at pinochle, tolerating strategic games, and crushing my family at Speed.
  • Teaching my sons to jitterbug, two-step, and play poker.
  • Scrapbooking: with dear friends, Martina McBride music, licorice handy.
  • Training my mind and body for a nice long run. I’m slow, but I always finish.
  • The sun. I love, love, love the sun.
  • The Bison. (Bi-zon). NDSU Bison. The Herd. We are a nation.

What does your heart love?

The Business of Life

Mathematically coded, carefully calculated forumula on conducting the Business of Life:

=♥

LIVE with HEART.

Yup.
That simple.

Be passionate.
Make things simple.
Embrace your crazy.
Work diligently every day, except on the days you need a good rest.

We need to use brilliance and intellect. Problem-solving and deduction are important, too. But, when the chips are down - what matters?

It's bonding. Connecting. And valuing people.

Rather than filling your schedule with projects, instead, spend time with people.

Serving the committees, advising boards, and volunteering is important. But, the majority of the projects you direct may be forgotten.   Yet, we will remember most of the people we meet. 

 

Therefore, people impact lives. People touch hearts.

 

More about =♥

Projects needs pizaaz.
Every rule has an exception.
Each day needs a personal connection.
Use energy, talents, and time responsibly.
Cherish friends.
Organize your wild hair ideas.
Perfection is for the birds.
Music motivates, and open windows liberate.

Self-awareness builds character.

Eat chocolate.
Pray daily.
Eat chocolate while you’re praying.
