Animal Message of the Day: Mary Beth

From Mary Beth: “I am grateful for a gentle touch or a soft scratch behind my ears. I love to hear people speak softly to me and let me lean in to them. I love my donkey friend Mabel who watches over me and shares all of the things she knows in life. She has been super kind to me and I think she is wonderful, even when I get jealous and kick at her to get her to move so I can have more attention. She doesn’t mind though. I appreciate when people see me for who I am and don’t get lost in what I look like and that I am not normal looking like the other donkeys. I love that I get to be a donkey in the midst of a place that loves who donkeys are and understands what we have to offer. I love to be appreciated. I love all who love me and I strive to love the ones who cannot see past their own curtains to see the light in others. I truly am grateful for each day. When my heart beats, it beats with the same intensity of the sun and the moon and the stars. No matter how long I have in this lifetime, I will cherish each day and every moment.”

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.
