Nothing in life can hold more joys or more tears, can make you more proud or more tired, or give back more rewards that being a parent.

Life lessons

While most of us had the almost "normal" week, but somewhere else, we have friends who have lost someone dear.

Losing someone or something you love is very painful. After a significant loss, you may experience all kinds of difficult and surprising emotions, such as shock, anger, and guilt. Sometimes it may feel like the sadness will never let up. While these feelings can be frightening and overwhelming, they are normal reactions to loss. Accepting them as part of the grieving process and allowing yourself to feel what you feel is necessary for healing.
There is no right or wrong way to grieve — but there are healthy ways to cope with the pain. You can get through it!

Grief that is expressed and experienced has a potential for healing that eventually can strengthen and enrich life.

I saw this quote :
"no one can go back in time to change the past,
but anyone can start a new today and have a new ending"
Just to let you know that I am thinking you today and will leave you with this:
And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes, there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain...Rev 21:4

The Animal Farm, Hillcrest

In September 2010, we decided to go to the Animal Farm in Hillcrest.

A delightful venue with a wide selection of animals, big and small. Owner managed by a couple, who clearly love animals. The tea garden offers light lunches, breakfast, cakes and beverages in a lovely setting overlooking the farms on the opposite side of the valley. You can feed and pet the animals, milk a cow, ride a pony and even go on a tractor ride.

Ethan and Tyler were very fasinated with the goats that lay around outside their open cages and they are so tame. 

Ethan and Tyler soon overcame their fear of feeding.

Billy Goat Guff!

 Daisy the cow goes moooo!

Yay they have a playgym!

I am on Facebook and click here to see more!

Thanks for looking!
