Bottle feeding a baby animal - Day 93

Is there anything that says spring more than baby animals? And baby lambs? Oh so cute! My daughters got to have the joy of feeding bottles to couple of little orphaned lambs at my parents house this past weekend. I grew up on this farm, taking care of baby goats and lambs, and remember how common place this sometimes became - just another chore. Watching the joy and delight on their face was a priceless reminder of the blessing it was for me to grow up in this environment. You really don't know what you've got 'til it's gone I guess!

“A kindly gesture bestowed by us on an animal arouses prodigies of understanding and gratitude.”   Sidonie Gabrielle
