These are unprecedented times we are going through, the likes of which we have never seen. People are dying, losing their jobs, told to shelter in place, practice social distancing, school has been canceled for the rest of the year, the economy is tanking, and retirement accounts are dwindling. What makes it even more unsettling is the end is an unknown, we just don’t know how long this will last or even what the end will look like. But the lone constant in my life are the residents at the sanctuary. They don’t know what a pandemic is and I’m sure even if they did know, they wouldn’t care. They look for us to follow through on our promise to give them a great life, so that is what we are doing. Baby donkey Gerry wants to play, Joe the sheep will always come looking for carrots, the horses are always looking for pasture time and the pigs are always waiting to be fed and eat as if they have been starved! The other evening, I watched one of the female sheep bounce around like a kangaroo! Being around them puts these crazy times in perspective, it gives us a break from the insanity that our lives have become. They only know how to be themselves and I am thankful for that.
