Happy Mother's Day...

In honor of the bond between mothers and children and the joy that my children have brought into my life, I dedicate today's post to that most life-affirming of miracles: Motherhood...
My beautiful "Diva" discovering motherhood for the very first time.

The bond is almost instantaneous. Diva and her son, "Rock Star".

Here's Alice with her 2005 ram lamb "Zahara". "Harry" went on to win the champion Shetland ram lamb class, at the Wisconsin Sheep & Wool Festival, and is now a flock sire in Illinois...

Alice with Harry's sister, "Zola"...

This is Phoebe with "Flash Flood". I think Flash looks like an alpaca cria!

Here's Savannah with her daughter, "Zabrina"...

My beautiful Zaria with the handsome HST ram lambs that she gave me this year...

Alice, calmly caring for her newborn triplets...

The love between a ewe and her newborn lambs is palpable...this is Zest with Bella & Trinity.

And Zodiak with "Make a Wish" and "Dream Come True"...

Alice and "Glitter"...

Diva and "Rocky"...

I wish you all a wonderful Mother's Day. I am humbled by the knowledge that my mother loved me, more than life it self. I am grateful for the strength and courage she taught me and in awe of the way she faced life (and death). She will always be with me. And with MY children...

Pam, Ben and Katie ~ I love you more than you could ever know. And I wish for you the same JOY that you have brought to my life.

DREAM says...

..."My kids took me out for breakfast for Mother's Day!"

    What a lovely tribute to Mother's Day, your mother, your children, and the sheep mothers and their children! Happy Mother's Day, Nancy! ( I got to see all 4 of my grandkids today and my daughter and son-in-law--My son called as well. It was a great day. My oldest grand daughter and I skirted Zaria's lovely fleece and the 3 girls and I gardened some, too-do the little ones ever love to help water!)


  7. Wishing you a Happy Mothers Day, you have the most beautiful babies at your house, this is the first time in twenty some years I have not had a barn full of babies so am feeling a bit sad but am loving your pictures of yours.
