Little Meets Lily

Our Little loves animals in a way that is hard to express in words. The joy one gets from watching her interact with animals can only be topped by the joy she is getting from the interaction. It’s one of the reasons I believe wholeheartedly that there will be animals in heaven . . .

Last week our joy meter almost burst because Little and I were taken to a “farm” nearby to meet a miniature horse named Lily.new friends

While the adults chatted, my little girl was focused on the new friend she had met and took the task of loving her very seriously. She led her to the barn. . .Lily leading Lilysprayed her with fly spray and brushed her top to bottom. . .brushingand then fed her treats.feedingI  teared up watching her. Life is simple for Little and her joy in found in such simple things – it is profound to watch and consider.

And just when we thought there couldn’t be more, Little was handed a hen to hold.little henThere were chickens everywhere and Lily followed some around the building and re-emerged holding one that she had chased down and caught by herself!!
