I passed them yesterday morning, walking to their school. Across the fields they traveled, their
backpacks and lunches with them. I thought to myself, as to how many different forms of
transportation the children in America take, to get to school. I'm not sure there
are too many with this method.
I walked a mile to school every day, in the town I lived it. My husband walked a mile to his school.
I think about those days at times, and conclude that life is so different in today's world.
I knew who lived in most of the homes I passed along the way. I knew the crossing guards by
What form of transportation did you take to get to your elementary school?
In the morning, and again in the evening, I pass many farms.
Whether it is early in the day, or late in the evening, the farms offer a unique,
and peaceful scenery for all who pass by
As the sun was setting last evening, I was reminded again, of how much work
is required to operate a farm. It was 7:00pm, and the farmers were
still in their barns and fields, busy at work.
I wonder if those young children walking the fields to their school, will continue the traditions of
those who own and operate the beautiful farms they grew up with? I wonder if there will be as
many changes when they are grown up, as there were since I was a child?
I am most grateful to all those who work the fields and operate the farms.
I appreciate their work ethic and that they are passing that same concept on
to their children. I am thankful for what they continually teach me, as I drive
the many roads in my part, of our great country.
Wishing you scenes of beauty as you go through your day today.
