The group of guys in the picture above look rather serious.
They were standing up for my son. . who stands in the forefront.
The photo was taken in 2005. . .
and perhaps the thing I love about it the most... .
is that these guys still stand up for each other.
Last week one day. . .
a group of them showed up at our place to load the trailers with the necessary equipment to go into the bush .. .and "rough it" for a spell.
I missed capturing the rest of the boys who went . . .
but I was outside long enough to read them the riot act. . .
and ask a few "unnecessary" safety questions.
When I heard the trucks start up .. .
I quickly ran outside to take a picture of them going . . .
and to ask the Lord to bless them and to keep them all safe.
They are all family men now. . .
the whole lot of them.
It occured to me yesterday that. . .
even when your son is nearly thirty . .
you are still thankful for him finding. . .
and keeping ..
Yesterday. . .
I was coming home from town. .
when one after another. . .
they passed me going the other direction.
It seems they had dropped off the necessary things at the farm. . .
and they were each anxious to get home to see their family.
I'm happy they are home.
