I don’t think I’ve ever been away from the farm for this long, and, even though I know it’s a necessary evil, I am quite lonesome for my animals, my barn, and my own bed.

I am feeling pretty terrible today. It’s almost as if my immune system got the memo that I’m starting treatment next week and is trying to kill me before then. Mostly I’m just weak and tired, but looking at these old pictures of the farm made me feel a little better. It’s amazing how healing lambs can be.
