Watching the intense Super Bowl game yesterday was one thing, but seeing the commercial from Dodge using Paul Harvey’s speech “Farmer” was a definite highlight. I’m a sentimental person by nature, and watching this commercial with his famous words capturing all that my family has lived for in the past, and what I hope to carry on in my own legacy; it truly made me stop in my tracks and take note.
Although so many who are generations from the farm may not understand what this all means, and how much truth there is in these words, please take note that we “farmers” are still out there. And it’s still true…
God had to have somebody willing to ride the ruts at double speed to get the hay in ahead of the rain clouds and yet stop in mid-field and race to help when he sees the first smoke from a neighbor’s place. So God made a farmer.
Somebody who’d bale a family together with the soft strong bonds of sharing, who would laugh and then sigh, and then reply, with smiling eyes, when his son says he wants to spend his life “doing what dad does.” So God made a farmer.
If you missed it, here it is!
Here is the full version, also very good!
Thank you Dodge for your tribute to all the farmers who work hard everyday!! I’m still a Ford girl at heart, but you may have gained a few points in my book yesterday!
