Remember this post from awhile back? Well Little Miss Clover has gotten to be a big ole grown up rabbit! The Youngun is still in love with her and the feeling is still mutual. The Youngun takes Clover for walks around the homestead, lays on the sill with Clover on her chest and tells her stories.
Friday evening The Youngun and I were coming in from the barn after our last check of Star for the night. It was a beautiful evening, the stars were out, the moon was near full and the sky was crystal clear. We were walking up to the house talking about the stars. As we were at the back door taking off our mud boots The Youngun said to me...
....Mama, is it wrong that I like animals better than people? I said.........No it isn't. Animals will never hurt you, never lie to you, never cheat, or steal. You always know where you stand with animals. She said.........Good cause I do like animals better than most people.
Bless that child's heart. I love that little girl so very much. I can't even describe the love I feel for her. She is so kind, compassionate, sensitive, and savvy among other things. She "gets it" more so than most adults I know. She's an old soul and I'm very thankful that God chose The Paintiff and I to be her parents.
Till next time.............GOD BLESS FROM GOODWIFE FARM!
