From Cumin: “Hey there! Take it from someone little, who doesn’t get around much, but understands more about the world then you know, there is so much to be grateful for in this world! What would a guinea pig know, you ask? Well don’t let my little body fool you. I see more in this world than you realize. I read a lot. No, not books. Of course guinea pigs cannot read books. But, we certainly can read a lot about humans, directly from the source. You humans throw a lot of energy around willy nilly at times. You have wonderful hearts, but you walk around a little scattered. You need to root yourself better to the earth. You probably need to eat more vegetables than you do. And when is the last time you truly savored a good piece of apple? When you live in a very tiny body like mine, everything looks large around you. But you need to see the true essence of things so that you can understand them better and not fear them. Use your hearts more. You have such beautiful hearts. I appreciate you, even if I haven’t met you personally. I appreciate everyone. Try to find something you can appreciate about each person you meet. It will change your life. And that is a guinea pig promise.”
Each day through December 31, as has been our annual tradition now for many years, we will share with you a message from one of the animals of Spring Farm CARES. We hope this will provide you with a bit of inspiration for your day.
