Animal Message of the Day: Mary

From Mary: “Someone told me once that if you can’t quite reach something you are trying to get, then it is best to move to another position and find something else. Like when there is a great patch of clover but it is just over the fence out of reach. It does no good to stand there stretching and reaching for something impossible to get to. But if you just move ahead and keep on looking, there will be another patch of clover out there just for you. I know that sounds simple. But most of my life things were just out of reach until I moved along to another place and found plenty of what I am looking for. My flock may not look like sheep, because they are not sheep. But if I cast them away because they were not just like me, I wouldn’t have the wonderful goat friends that I do. Happiness came in a different form. Companionship looked different than I thought. Thank goodness I stopped long enough to see the truth. Life gives you great gifts. Sometimes it just doesn’t look how you thought it would. Don’t give up. Just keep moving.”

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.
