Saying “good by”ever gets any easier even when it is animal in nature. They have been part of our lives for the better part of 10 years, at least the big mamas. We have enjoyed watching them take care of their babies and cried when we one didn’t make it. They have gotten lost and found and demanded attention when we got to hung up on something else.
Now they have a new home and while I am thankful someone come to the rescue instead of having to run them through the sale barn I am missing them and so is Babe (the dog).
Senepol…..Momma cows of the South
Of course I need to be big about this so I made a Thank you card to ease my emotions . I have trouble making cards for men so I opted to stamp dsp myself and just say Thanks
Comments on: "Chapter Two" (2)
I would have cried, Beverly, and I haven’t been through the traumas you’ve been through! Parting with four legged friends can be the toughest of things to do.
You weren’t just parting with one four legged friend, but a whole barnful of them. Beautiful, soft eyed, long eyelashed, fabulous red haired ladies who had been loved by your husband, and yourself. (and the dog). But sadly, once your husband passed on, keeping the cows was a difficult thing for you to do. When there’s two of you, I’m pretty sure that everything worked like clockwork. But there only being one of you, keeping them was an impossible task.
They’re now living in their new home, and I’m sure that if you asked, the new owners would welcome you to go and visit them and say hello.
But this is not to take away the pain you felt, feel, as you had to let them go. Letting go is such a difficult thing to do, but it’s the brave thing to do. You have made a sensible choice FOR YOU. Only you know your full circumstances, and only you can make the decision to do what needs to be done in order to allow you to run your life smoothy.
Letting them go is best for you, and a kind and wonderful thing to do for them. They need taking care of, and right at this time you only have enough resources to take care of yourself – and even that can be a tough thing some days.
You have made the brave decision. Well done my friend. I’m so proud of you. And so, I feel, is Mr. Parkinson.
Sending love, from my corner to yours. ~ Cobs. x
p.s. . . . love the card by the way! 🙂 xxx ❤
