Allow me to introduce to you a sweet couple I met this week:
This is Mae and her husband, Ben. I convinced them to take a few minutes out of their busy day to pose for me. Ben, along with their six sons, is busy harvesting corn and soy beans.
Farm life is busy for Mae and their six daughters, too, with all the household chores, including the daunting task of cooking three meals a day for fourteen people.
Like many folks living during the Great Depression, Mae and Ben don’t have a lot of money, but their home is filled with love, and they’re raising kind, hard-working, honest children. That’s just what you do.
Doesn’t Ben just look so proud to be standing there beside his bride on this gorgeous autumn day?
Any similarity between this post and my grandparents is purely……intentional.
