Thank you for caring..........

I want to say thank you for all of you who came by today & shared your kind words......it means so much to me knowing that you took time out of your day to share it with me. I know things happen for a reason but sometimes I just don't know why it has to happen at all. My home is my safety net, it is my comfort zone, it is what I am all about.......it is my own little world and my animals have become my life line, they inspire me everyday in some little way & for as much work as they can be, they remind me to slow down & enjoy the day, to just hang out with them.
I need to learn how to do that more often.............
I need to stop and see the beauty of the seasons..........

I need to see how just a simple fence can provide a beautiful picture......Life is so short, it does need to be embraced, for the simpliest things can mean so much, and so much of that for me is my animals & my little farm. I need to smile also when I feel so sad because I do not want to miss someone trying to help me feel better.

I captured this picture of Abigail's ewe lamb today & she just seemed to smile at me as if to say it will be okay & my heart melted & the tears flowed. I love my little lambs so much. They have brought so much joy to my farm this year. Perhaps I shall name her "Autumn's Blessing" in honor of Autumn Splendor who captured my heart and whose name I want to live on here at Harvest Thyme.


Thank you to all of you who shared your hugs & kindness.
I hug each & everyone of you back for thinking of me & Autumn:)

Awww, you're welcome Kristi. That's what friends are for.
I think your sweet little lamb was smiling at you, and it will be okay in time...Autumn will always be with you in your heart.
I think that naming the other lamb Autumn's Blessing is a wonderful idea.
Take care,
Tracey

I agree with Tracy, that's what friends are for, and what a sweet idea to carry on Autumn's name with Abigail's ewe lamb.

I, too, think it would be a nice touch to name the other lamb Autumn's Blessing. Lovely way to carry on Autumn's memory.

I have never been able to understand the "oh, it's just a cow/goat/sheep/whatever" mentality. Animals get into our hearts and remain there forever. It's so painful to lose one, it sometimes make you wonder why even have them, but then you realize how cold and lonely life would be without them.

Am so glad you are feeling better, and yes--that little ewe is definitely smiling. :)
