Abounding with memories, the farmyard embodies an inheritance of hard work and sacrifice. A clapboard bunkhouse stores equipment instead of exhausted farm workers. Windows covered by checked curtains fashions a whitewashed brooder house into a child’s dream home. Topped by a weathered cupola, the mammoth barn screams of adventure and anecdotes. Leather harnesses and horse shoes hang from the rafters of an abandoned milk barn. A young Irish family endured war, drought and uncertainty to become stronger. They realized all they had was today which has become our tomorrow.

    The last line is my favorite! It has a lot of punch to it. The more I read it, the more I fall in love with it. Brings tears to my eyes.

    Wow! I agree. I love the last line. You do a nice job of painting a vivid picture with very details specific to this particular setting!
