It's all I have to bring today


People frequently ask me why we moved to North Carolina.
There are a lot of reasons why; but mostly for Mr. Nielson's work.
(Also because it's gorgeous here:)
Christian is building a app that will service ranchers and farmers.
Moving here has been crucial to the development and science behind the product.  
He has been working so hard these past five years on it- 
yes, FIVE YEARS, and the move to the south has been
a huge stepping stone for its success.
This app has cost him his (and mine)
blood, sweat, tears, money, and time.

Hey Mr. Nielson, (because I know you read my blog every morning
while you wait for the girls in early morning seminary),
 I just want you to know that I believe in you, and I am so proud of what
you have done and what you are creating.
You are capable, and smart, and
 I've loved sharing life's experiences together, yes every last one.
It’s all I have to bring today—
This, and my heart beside—
This, and my heart, and all the fields—
And all the meadows wide—
Be sure you count—should I forget
Some one the sum could tell—
This, and my heart, and all the Bees
Which in the Clover dwell.
