There was a time on planet earth when sweat equity had real value. When fortunes were forged from iron and steel and the sheer will of a dedicated soul. When man was the master of his machine and he poured his spirit into the work. In those days he sew his sweat into the soil and reap gold. The good life smelled like petroleum and livestock and freshly opened ground. When dirt under the fingernail was the mark of excellence and books enriched the heart. Things made in those days were more than a commodity. They were a piece of someone’s life. A little part of the producer was embedded into the fabric of the creation. The meat on table, the hay that fed the cow and tractors that made it possible to provide a living all carried the essence of those who did the work. In such ways families were bound to each other and a healthy community was all made one blood. We can still have that connection with each other today. All we need to do is understand the value we impart to each other.
