Hard workers are all over our world, but midwesterners have a reputation for their work ethic. We know that nothing is free, and that hard work is priceless.
These photos embody that hard work that I admire in so many in this region. The subject is my husband, and after spending 8+ hours working as a diesel mechanic, he came home and immediately began working on our farm.
He has ambition. He wants to someday sustain his own business and farm, but knows that he has to put in the sweat, the hours, and the resources to achieve this.
Who in your life shares this perspective? I'd love to hear about them, and hopefully someday capture their work on camera.
