By this time, we've all seen the 'So God Made a Farmer' commercial that Ram Trucks ran during the 2013 Superbowl. Hearing Paul Harvey recite that poem makes my heart flutter and eyes well up every. single. time.
So Sierra, smart gal that she is, decided that she would whip up a poem of her own to meet the needs of several other important folks on the farm or ranch and 'So God Made a Ranch Wife' was born!
|Such a great piece of writing!|
You can tell the love that Sierra has for ranch life as you read through the poem and the photo she used as a background is just beautiful! I've read the poem several times and I think my favorite part is:
"God had to have somebody willing to work in town for 'the insurance,' to warm cold calves in her kitchen and spend her weekends working to get the hay in at double speed ahead of the rain clouds. And, keep working at it alone, when the rancher goes off to help the neighbor when she sees the first smoke. So God made a ranch wife."I think this is one of the true testaments to a farm or ranch wife - being able to go it alone when the boss man is gone. Better yet, many women ARE the boss and sometimes the man works in town. I think this is just further proof that women are just as strong and dependable as men when it comes to farm and ranch life.
Up for grabs are TWO copies of Sierra's poem (her treat) in basic frames from Hob Lob (my treat). They are 8x10 sized and will be a great gift for the farm or ranch wife in your life and again, Mother's Day is just around the corner! If you aren't one of the lucky two winners, you can buy the print on Sierra Shea just as easily (it's a steal at $10).
I have started using Rafflecopter for my giveaways so there are several ways for you to enter below - the giveaway will run until next Wednesday and the winner will be picked on Thursday, April 10. Best of luck and please share what your favorite line from the poem is in the comment section!
