Years from now when she looks back at this picture I hope she remembers feeding the bottle calf “Sally”.
I hope she remembers she learned the importance of taking care of something else and that “Sally” needed her.
I hope she remembers the way the calves hair felt and the slobbers that she would get on her coat.
I hope she remembers the sense of pride she felt, that at only four years old, she was able to feed a bottle calf by herself and that she was brave and not afraid.
I hope she remembers not only this time of her life on the farm, but all of the wonderful and rewarding things she did and that they made her the person she became.
For my hope is that she will look back at these remembered times and smile. The smile that says, “What a blessing it was to grow up on a farm”.
Blessings to you,
