So God Made Farmers

Once in a while commercials make me cry, and this one did. It reminded me of my grandpa, of thinning apples in the orchard and stacking hay in the old barn, of pruning rosebushes and picking ripe tomatoes, of watching him everyday with his coveralls and leather gloves, arthritic hands, tired bones, and in the end, cancer. Hard work, love, fruition.
