Growing up, Mum and Dad sent all three of us boys South for spring

1 by 1. Down to the farm.

It was a learning curve for me, that’s for sure.

I actually don’t think I really know the words to describe it,

It was hard, physically and mentally.

Horizontal hail and freezing rain. New born lambs fighting for their lives.

Heart wrenching

But then,

A cutie like this

Is so satisfying to see.

And all the pain and anguish is suddenly in perspective.

I learnt so many lessons about life that it’s hard to pick out just one, but today, one comes to mind,

It’s no about the battles you loose. Just focus on the ones you win and keep smiling.
