Sheep in the Agrarian Show

We visited one of my favorite agrarian shows where I buy always new kinds of plants and my husband looks for new breeds of hens. There are many different championships in that show but the most important is maybe those of local breeds of cows.

I went in one pavilion where there were plants a year ago. This year, there were sheep. All with newborn lambs. 

It was not very pleasant look. Something was happened during the way so that all the sheep gave birth the same night. But it was a sad pavilion. Later, my husband wanted to go there. I remained outside to wait for him. I could not enter once more there. He went out from there after some minutes and was disgusted, too.

There was nothing bad in the event, probably. But it was a sad look for me.

Gratitude of a Humpback Whale

This story I copy it from Facebook. I think, I do not need other words to describe it. And, since I copy it, I hope, the author will not be angry with me.

A female humpback whale had become entangled in a spider web of crab traps and lines. She was weighted down by hundreds of pounds of traps that caused her to struggle to stay afloat. She also had hundreds of yards of line rope wrapped around her body, her tail, her torso, a line tugging in her mouth.

This is her story of giving gratitude.

A fisherman spotted her just east of the Faralon Islands (outside the Golden Gate) and radioed for help. Within a few hours, the rescue team arrived and determined that she was so badly off, the only way to save her was to dive in and untangle her…. a very dangerous proposition.

One slap of the tail could kill a rescuer.

They worked for hours with curved knives and eventually freed her.

When she was free, the divers say she swam in what seemed like joyous circles. She then came back to each and every diver, one at a time, nudged them, and pushed gently, thanking them. Some said it was the most incredibly beautiful experience of their lives.

The guy who cut the rope out of her mouth says her eye was following him the whole time, and he will never be the same.

May you be so fortunate …

To be surrounded by people who will help you get untangled from the things that are binding you.

And, may you always know the joy of giving and receiving gratitude.
