I truly believe keeping a positive attitude allows for opportunities to happen. I have found another wonderful man, that happens to be a dairy farmer. I left my career of 28 years and took a leap of faith. I now I live on a robotic dairy farm in east central Iowa.
Each occupation has its own jargon and dairy farming is no different. Additions to my vocabulary include terms such as dry cow, lactating cow, somatic cell counts, milk fat, and milk solids, just to name a few. My husband has also learned a few from me as well. Those will be some ideas for future posts.
Along with my new husband came his two daughters. People give John sympathy when they find out we have 5 daughters. When he married me, he became an instant grandpa and also gained a son-in-law. John's extended family has welcomed me and my three daughters into their family. And my family has welcomed John and his daughters as well. As the minister said at our wedding, love makes the circle grow bigger.
