Heartbreak and Mercy in Real Time — 4 Comments

  1. I’m sorry that the little one didn’t make it…that’s sad. Your blog was so nicely written, it made me feel like I was actually there experiencing the event.

    • I’ve learned to not fall apart over it every time, but I don’t think I’ll ever be able to accept it quite as easily as people who grew up on a farm seem to be able to. I’m trying to find a balance of teaching the kids to accept it but not lose compassion over it. And I’m so glad that we’ve learned so much more now that it’s not a common part of our life on the farm. I don’t think I could face losses every day or every season.
