For those of us who can't remember what age we started "working" because we grew up working every day on the farm. Who knows the value of a dollar because it's something earned, not given. Who never received an allowance for "good behavior" because good behavior was expected at all times. Who never had a curfew because as long as we were up in time for morning chores, and didn't complain about being tired, it didn't matter what time we came in, because our parents trust us. Who know we're better people because of the hard work and long hours we've put in. Who never understood the complaint that "there's nothing to do around here" because we always found something to do. Who put in more hours before the sun comes up than most people our age put in all day, and then keep on working long after the sun sets. Who understand the value of earning things by your own merit. Who couldn't imagine raising a family anywhere but on a farm. Who know there are easier occupations but none as rewarding. Who just plain wouldn't trade growing up on the farm for anything else in the world.
