Profession of Hope

Farming is a profession of hope. ~Brian Brett (HobbyFarms.com)

Spring is upon us, and though for some of us it’s still a little too cold to get outside and work the soil, we have hope that our period of hibernation will soon come to an end. The act of holding close to a dream or ambition is nothing new for farmers. As we plant seeds, we hope that they will become seedlings and then mature plants that we can savor and nourish our bodies with. When droughts come upon us, we hope that rain is on its way—and when we’ve had our fill of rain, that the sun will soon peek out from behind a storm cloud. Yes, without hope, a farmer would continuously be running into brick walls, but thanks to this gem, we muster up the motivation to face another day doing our important work.

Each day as the lambs are being born or growing, my hope is to see them mature and grow, and each day marvel at the wonder of nature, how something can come from their mother and with her nurturing, grow into a healthy, happy creature. Having hair sheep which have such a friendly demeanor and so much personality, they are each very much their own "personality". Many have a name that is know to us even though we have had over 300 at a time, they are still very much individuals. Looking forward to walking in the field with them in the summer sunshine is a big part of what gives me hope. Each new life is a chance to meet another wonderful friend. wall2wallsheep.com Lorna March 31, 2013
