A Necessary evil

It's that time of year again.......the time of year where I have to decide who goes and who stays.  That time of year when my head does battle with my heart.  Even though I'm careful to place all my lambs in good situations, it's still heart wrenching to stand in the lawn and watch them go up the driveway to their new homes.  The first of my sheep for sale left last night, and they are going to a wonderful home, but I find myself missing them already, and since I know I'm faced with watching 3 more leave on Monday, this holiday weekend is a little bitter sweet for me.  I'm not sad, well,,,,not too sad, but I am a bit "off" when some of my flock is gone.  I know it's silly, but I can't seem to help it.
 *** sigh****

Thank you to Laurie and Brad for giving 4 of my sheep a great home.  You have helped me get my flock moving towards a more manageable number.  (I keep telling myself that is a good thing) 

Let's all try to remember to honor those that gave so much so that we can live and enjoy the freedom that was have today.   

God Bless all of them for their sacrifices. 

Thank you, from the bottom of my heart!!!


  1. I thank them too, Kelly. I don't know whether or not you have heard, but a British soldier was butchered on the streets of London the day before yesterday by a couple of converted 'Muslim' men, just for being a soldier.

    A good thing may come from this. All the true British Muslims are coming out to say how much they abhor what happened, and how they think it has nothing to do with anyone's 'true god'.

    An ill wind, maybe.

    1. I heard about this on the news and was sickened that it happened. Too much hatred in this world. sigh


He who angers you, controls you.

And my favorite.......You can't control what others say or do, but you can control your reaction.
