The day I became an official member of my local church, my friends came to witness the big event.
As they walked through the church door they proclaimed themselves to be my "Carhartt Support Group."
Since I practically live in my Carhartts, including at church that day, I was pleasantly pleased and put at ease with the wonderful friendship my farm friends provided on that special day.
My dear neighbor also came and wore a very special tie for the event.
Appropriate and greatly appreciated.
It is times like these that I realize how fortunate I am to live in this village, in this rural county and in this state. I do hope that all of you get to experience genuine kindness in your lifetime.
